Join your fellow residents for line dancing every Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00-11:30 a.m. in the Group Fitness Room. It’s never too late to start! We will teach you the steps to every dance . . . at your pace.
Through dancing, you will improve your cardiovascular endurance and balance. A study in the Journal of Women and Aging interviewed 30 adults over the age of 60 who regularly line dance. Results of the interviews showed that “line dancing enabled these women to expand their repertoire of social activity, leading to positive reinforcements such as further community involvement, charitable work, inclusion in national sports events, self-expression, and personal development. The impact of line dancing plainly goes beyond the perceived physical benefits.”
Plymouth Harbor residents who regularly participate in the class claim their balance has noticeably improved since they began line dancing!
