Tiina created the successful and highly valued Come Dance With Me program with Christine Bryden, for Dementia Australia in 2014. Today, she continues to deliver perceptive conversation workshops as a Communication Awareness Consultant.

Her unique non-verbal communication technique was developed over 35 years, while delivering workshops in community, cultural and dance-in-health contexts. She is inspired by Dementia Heroes who show us, how to live in the present and communicate, through body memory.

This program has been designed collaboratively with people with dementia, to make it truly dementia friendly. It offers creative dance, based on non-verbal conversation through movement, and includes socialisation as well as moderate physical exercise.

'The Listening Eyes technique is a set of tools which support perceptive conversation and proactive relationship building. We can forget how transparent we are, when engaging in a conversation'. Tiina Alinen
