The chapter explores the School’s creative and innovative history that led to the creation of Sharing Dance Older Adults. A key feature of the chapter is the emphasis on building an understanding of the program’s distinctive development, expansion, and principles. This chapter provides the applied foundation for the remaining chapters of the book which is of interest to researchers, dance practitioners, and organizations offering arts-based programs for older adults with different ageing experiences and needs.
