Dancing for seniors, health benefits

Local News

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — We all know exercise is good for us, but what about dancing?
The combination of movement, music, and socialization can be seriously good for our health– especially for seniors.

A new study suggests dancing can boost the brain health of older adults. An Assistant Professor of Medicine and Neurology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine says dancing is the aerobic part, but dancing usually is social, which can help brain function– and learning new steps is cognitively demanding.

All those factors make dancing the go-to exercise for seniors.

Locally at Solstice Senior Living, residents and staff couldn’t agree more.
