Dementia, those living with Parkinsons as well as in supported and sheltered housing schemes
The Dance Network Association has been successfully managing dance classes for older people for over 5 years in and around Essex, working with those living with Dementia, those living with Parkinsons as well as in supported and sheltered housing schemes.
Research by The New England Journal of medicine conducted over a 21-year period found that dancing frequently reduced the risk of dementia by 76% – the highest percentage of any activity in the study. The World Health Organisation states that Older adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity throughout the week, and so through these sessions we believe we have an impact, one that we wish to continue into 2020 and beyond.
We would love to extend an invitation to you to join at at one of the following classes this December.
Please let us know if you can attend so that we have enough mince pies and space!
