Line Dancing – Instructor: Tracy Walters

Keep dancing… turns out it is good for the brain!

  • In 2003, research published in the New England Journal of Medicine found that dancing can reduce the onset of dementia.
    The 21-year study of senior citizens, aged 75 and older, was led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, funded by the National Institute on Aging. They measured each participant’s mental alertness as a means of monitoring the rates of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease.
  • The researchers studied a range of cognitive and physical activities, such as reading; writing; doing crossword puzzles; playing cards; playing musical instruments; dancing; walking; tennis; swimming and golf.
  • Surprisingly, dance was the one activity that was good for the mind, significantly reducing dementia risk. Regular dancing reduced the risk of dementia by 76%, twice as much as reading.

Tuesday – Line Dancing – Beginner  (Fitness Level 3)

 

Line dancing is a low impact form of dancing that is danced with everyone in lines, following a dance pattern. Made famous by the country music of the early 1990s, you may not have done line dancing before, but you have definitely seen it!

  • We start our class with learning a few steps and 1 or 2 dance patterns as we work our way to learning 2 different dances. We continue the rest of the upcoming weeks, learning 4 to 6 dances in total.
  • We end each class with some stretching exercises to ensure we do a proper cool down for our muscles

Line dancing is more than just country music! If you love music and love to dance, come join us as we work our way to learning dances like the cupid shuffle, electric slide, college hustle and more!
