Dance for Brain Health

Wednesday, April 24, 2024
11:30 am12:30 pm

Based on CDC reports, research shows that the areas of the brain that control memory and skills such as planning and organizing improve with exercise. 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.
