Dance has the added dimensions of rhythm, balance and music that enhance the benefits of simple movement – plus, it’s fun! This class is appropriate for persons living with dementia, their caregivers and anyone interested in preventing health conditions associated with cognitive decline.

The class will include:

Stretch and Warm-up: A series of gentle stretching and warm-up exercises inspired by the principles of Brain Dance, preparing the body and mind, creating a harmonious state for the dance experience that follows.

Follow Along Dance: Get ready to groove to a fantastic selection of music spanning different decades.

Guided Improvisation: You will move in your own way, expressing yourself freely on the dance floor. There are no wrong moves here; just dance from the heart.

Insight Memory Care Center will provide brain exercises and tips to take with you, this class is presented by Art of Movement, a Workhouse Arts Foundation Program at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton.
