The ViveKamayas ( magic Wisdom ) were set up 6 years ago as there was a recognised gap in the programme of dance on offer at Instep.

The ViveKamayas are a group of  “elders” in years but not in spirit, creativity or thought. 

This is what they say about 'why dance': 

“Because we dared to step forward...
stepped out and found a place to take risks... exploring the way our bodies move
Moved by our connection to each other…

“We live love , laugh
And in the dance we explore the facets and edges of ourselves…

 “Through our dance we have shown we are not limited by our age but rather enhanced by it. We bring our life experiences to bear on our work and show that it is not necessary to conform to society’s sometimes negative stereotypes of older people”
