Dance for Health

The NCD Unit in Lautoka, in collaboration with Lautoka City Council, has commenced community dance classes every Wednesday afternoon at Shirley Park from 5 – 6.15pm. The initiative aims to encourage and motivate local citizens to engage in regular physical activity to reduce their risk of developing NCDs.

Based in Shirley Park, the location allows for a large, open and central space for local citizens to exercise in natural surroundings. The Lautoka City Council has kindly donated the grounds for free, allowing a lower price ($2 per person) for people to participate, whilst free health screenings are available periodically by the Ministry of Health staff.
