Baycrest NBS Sharing Dance Seniors

Sharing Dance Seniors Level 2

Developed by Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) and Baycrest, Sharing Dance Seniors is a safe and accessible dance program that engages older adults in meaningful dance activity that aims to enhance physical, cognitive and overall health and well-being. There are currently two levels of the Baycrest NBS Sharing Dance Seniors program.

The Sharing Dance for Adults and Seniors pilot project truly changed my life. It helped me physically do things I haven’t been allowed to do for more than 50 years.
