Dancing in Time

Case study-Dance for Older Adults

Over the past few years, dance has been shown to be an enjoyable recreational activity used to improve the health and wellbeing of older adults through being physically active. Research has shown that dance improves balance, agility and muscle strength. It is suggested it could also improve mood and reduce the risk of depression in older adults. This is also important as all of these are considered important modifiable factors for reducing falls, a common cause of serious injuries in community-dwelling older adults.
