Sharing Dance for Adults and Seniors

Sharing Dance for Adults and Seniors

The NBS Sharing Dance programs for Adults and Seniors focus on free, high-quality dance activities designed to improve balance, increase range of movement, prevent injury, and manage symptoms associated with age-related illnesses such as Parkinson’s disease and dementia.

Sharing Dance for Active Seniors

This program provides active seniors with access to the social and physical benefits of dance, and was developed in partnership with Baycrest Health Sciences.

Sharing Dance for People with Dementia

This specialized program was created in partnership with Baycrest Health Services to share the heath benefits of dance to those with dementia.

Sharing Dance for People with Parkinson's 

In collaboration with the Dance for Parkinson’s Network Canada, this program gives those with Parkinson’s the opportunity to move to music and share the benefits of dance with others.

Why Dance for Seniors?

Dancing regularly offers opportunities to engage artistically while reaping lifelong physical, emotional and social benefits.
