Course Description

"Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion." - Martha Graham. Participants will spend each session warming up together before attempting to master several different dance forms including the Waltz, Charleston, Cha Cha, Line Dance, and the Soft-Shoe Shuffle, to name a few. More and more seniors are choosing dance, not just as a fun, social pastime, but also as a method for keeping their minds and bodies active. Dancing minimizes depression and increases strength and balance. Dancing protects our hearts, reduces pain and defends us against dementia. Join Us!
