Dance Makes You Feel Better Than Young
It's official: Anyone can dance--although many people just aren't confident that they can! For the longest time, dance was considered the province of the young and the fit. If you didn't look a certain way and if you couldn't jump, run, twirl, and roll, you weren't a dancer.
The people in the video above are unconventional dancers. After one ANYONE CAN DANCE® class, they were moving, laughing and feeling free in their bodies. I designed this program based on the format of the ground-breaking Dance for PD® , which has revolutionized movement for Parkinson's patients. My dancers are generally over 65 and may have physical restrictions--using a wheelchair or walker.
The evidence from research shows that dance enhances a person mentally, physically, and spiritually. Those who have taken class over a period of months say that they have noticed improvement in flexibility, coordination, attitude and body image, and that the class "loosens me up." Whether you have never danced before, or are returning to it after decades away, you may find the music and choreography inspiring!
