Expect to start off with a gentle warm up where we get the feet moving and begin to open and stretch the body from head to toe. Expect familiar music that makes you smile and a warm community of residents that want to have fun and challenge their body and mind to learn something new. You will learn Latin-inspired dance with much repetition, balance exercises, and many cross lateral movements to strengthen brain connections. My hope is that you leave with a smile on your face. I am passionate about teaching senior dance because “regularly engaging in social dancing lowered the seniors’ risk of dementia by a staggering 76%” according to the New England Journal of Medicine.
