With Ballroom Dance being proven as an effective way to prevent and treat dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and many cerebral diseases, why is it not the #1 prescribed activity among those afflicted?
Access, education and resources.
Private ballroom dance lessons are often only accessible at dance studios. In addition, ballroom dance teachers are not necessarily trained to work with students with special needs. Finally, those who do struggle with special needs aren’t always the ones who can afford pricey private lessons.
So how do we make ballroom more accessible to those who can truly use it to improve their quality of life?
The Rx Ballroom Dance program makes the healing benefits of ballroom dance more accessible by charging ZERO dollars to its participants who are struggling with neurodegenerative conditions.
That’s right. All ballroom dance lessons are free for our participants. Trained volunteers are available to act as supportive and encouraging dance partners. A professional ballroom dancer guides participants and their dance partners through a curriculum that is specifically designed to engage both the body and mind in order to help alleviate the symptoms of the participants and bring some joy back into their lives.
Your donations will directly cover the cost of the ballroom lessons, including the knowledge and experience of professional ballroom dancers, travel, materials, and space. You will also be directly contributing to a source of joy for the participants! Ballroom lessons have already begun, so please don’t wait. Click here.
