Care to Dance Inc.

Importantly, Care to Dance is not entertainment - but it IS entertaining. This wellness program was created to slow or delay the impact of cognitive deterioration from dementia. It is interactive with those with dementia. They are challenged to participate as they are able, whether by actually dancing or using dance movement and singing. Dancers use elaborate and "blinged" costumes and era appropriate music to stimulate mind and body. Dances are introduced with a brief history and then demonstrated, with high energy and audience appeal ultimately transitioning to participation by attendees, their friends and family as well as care giver or care community staff members.

An interactive ballroom dance program to improve cognitive and physical wellness particularly for those living with Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and dementia.

Care to Dance includes volunteer dancers of varying ages, professions, nationalities and dance experience to present and teach ballroom dance to those with dementia.

Programs are ordinarily 1 hour in duration and focus on general ballroom dance. Programs can also be themed such as "Boots 'n Bandanas," "Cinco de Mayo," "Rock 'n Roll" etc.

Providing dance therapy to those with dementia, their caregivers and family to restore dignity, improve cognition, wellness, quality of life and permit aging to potential.
