Can You Count To Eight? Okay, Then...Let's Dance! with Denise Schwartz

Backyard Oasis by Greenfield Community College

Episode notes

Dance Doctors Emily Fox and Denise Schwartz (they're not real doctors but they are real dancers!) discuss the enormous number of benefits dancing bestows on people of all ages, but especially on older adults: increased energy, balance, flexibility; improved cognitive skills; more social interaction... and more endorphins - the happiness chemicals- pumped into your body! And it's FUN! But think you can't dance? No, no, no...Dance Doc Fox reminds us that if you can count to eight, you can dance!
