Dear New Yorkers!
This has been an incredibly challenging time for the whole country. While all schools are closed, we are looking forward to staying in touch and continue our CASA and SU-CASA Programs online (Zoom). We believe the virtual classes will help people regain a sense of normalcy and community as they can see that their dance teachers and fellow students are not only healthy and happy but also participating with them in real-time.
Seniors 65+ of all backgrounds can find that dance classes are a lot of fun and won’t even realize they are exercising. Dancing, like most aerobic workouts, really benefit the body. It strengthens muscles and bones, increases cardiovascular health, and helps with digestion and circulation. Dance classes can also increase flexibility in seniors, which leads to better balance and lowers the risk of slip and fall accidents. Aerobic exercise can even help with proper weight loss, insomnia, and poor appetite. The social aspect of dance classes for seniors is equally beneficial. Even online!
Please take care of yourself, take care of your loved ones and know that we'll get through this together.
Join us any day!
