New Class: Line Dancing
Mondays at 1:00 pm in the FTJ Wellness/Fitness Center
Besides being just plain fun, line dancing has some amazing benefits for your health and wellness. Studies have shown that participating in line dancing classes may help reduce the risk of falls as you learn to harmonize the senses and spatial awareness of the hands, eyes, legs and ears. In addition, it may help lower the risk of cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s or early on-set dementia by creating new synapses between neurons in the brain through memorizing steps and coordinating movements to music.
In each class you will learn the basic steps needed for the dances taught that day, and each week we will review all of the previous dances learned. Enjoy everything from waltzes, rhumbas and cha cha’s to simplified Irish step dance, mambo and hundreds of other original choreographed styles.
If you have any questions or would like to join the class, please contact the Wellness Center at 253-756-6279.
