What JJ's Dance Studio Offers

PHYSICAL HEALTH Although often rigorous, dancing can easily be adapted to those that need low-impact physical activity. A variety of dances may be performed at a slower pace and intensity, more in line with the needs of older adults. This allows seniors to take full advantage of the benefits of dancing, including improving muscle and bone strength, while reducing the risk of injury or exhaustion. Moreover, improving posture, balance and movement skills promoted by dancing can help prevent falls and other hazardous accidents for older adults. PREVENT DISEASE In addition to the cardiovascular and muscle benefits of dancing, recent studies have demonstrated a link between dance practice and disease prevention in the elderly. Although the reasons remain unclear, the researchers assume that increased mental activity is necessary in dance. Memorizing steps and accounting for a partner can help prevent symptoms of dementia, Parkinson's and even chronic heart failure. SOCIAL ACTIVITY While many activities of the elderly suffer from high dropout rates, dancing compensates for this by being a fun and interactive experience. Social activity is also an important factor in the mental health and attitudes of older adults. Dancing is fundamentally a social activity. Not only can it be done almost anywhere without equipment, but it is at its best when done with others.
