Dancing has several health benefits for seniors, including improved cardio, balance, and mood, as well as other advantages you may not have considered. Some seniors report more energy, greater flexibility, better posture, and a stronger sense of accomplishment after participating in dance courses. They were also happier and had a stronger feeling of community and camaraderie. Dance Exchange in Takoma Park is hosting two free dance lessons for seniors.
Saturdays at 11:00 a.m., Dance Exchange will host Takoma Park Moves in collaboration with the Takoma Park Maryland Library. Join Dance Exchange artists as they move with a diverse group of families, professionals, and community people of various ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. There is no need to register; simply drop in whenever you like. Beginning March 26, the program will meet on Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. on the library's front lawn at 101 Philadelphia Ave. These activities are free and take place outside.
Dance Exchange’s Dance On Class takes place Thursdays, 11 am - 12 pm. This creative aging class is geared toward older adults but open to all ages. To register and join class via Zoom, go to danceexchange.org/dance-on-creative-aging-class
