Not just ballroom ! We do all kinds of dancing!
At Each Class:
You learn basic moves of ballroom and other dances, and why they can help you improve your balance and reduce your risk of falling.
We provide research-based balance testing at the beginning and end of each course to help you learn your risk of falls and track your progress.
We warm up and cool down, including breathing practice and stretches.
We encourage and help you practice. Practice works!
We have roundtable discussions.
We have fun!
This class is taught by physical therapists and other health care professionals. Hands-on assistance is usually available for those who need it or prefer it.
What to Wear & What to Bring:
Wear comfortable shoes that won’t slip off. Not too sticky is best, but whatever you need for comfort is fine.
Wear comfortable clothes. Layers can help you adjust as needed.
If you use hearing aids or eyeglasses, be sure to wear these!
Walkers, canes, walking sticks – if you use them, bring them!
