Meet the Host, Janice

Janice Fraser's journey to becoming an exercise/dance teacher started in 2018, fulfilling a childhood dream ignited by early dance classes. Armed with a degree in Health Studies and a career in special needs, she embarked on this new path. In 2017, her involvement in fundraising for Parkinson’s UK sparked a keen interest in Parkinson’s Dance (PD).

Since then, Janice has been continuously learning and improving her teaching skills. She studied PD through Community Dance and had the privilege to work and study with experienced dancers from Scottish Ballet and Dancebase. Since Covid she has produced a range of dance fitness classes online, particularly designed for anyone wanting to improve their health and wellbeing.

Janice has been involved in various dance-related events, workshops, and talks, addressing mental health, strength, balance, and well-being. Janice is a certified instructor for Exercise to Music, holds a BA in Health Studies with distinction, and has completed the People Dancing / Dance for PD training with distinction.

As an active member of numerous organisations, including The Care and Wellbeing Collective, Community Dance, GrowBiz Scotland, and Dance for PD, Janice continuously contributes to the dance community and strives to improve the lives of others through the joy and wellness that dance brings.

What if I can’t make the event?

If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.

Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?

Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.

How do I watch the live event?

Rest Less events are hosted on Zoom, a computer application that allows you to attend online events just by clicking a link. For detailed instructions, please go to our "FAQ" page, which you can find a link to in the nav bar at the top of the page.
