“I loved Diane’s over 50 dance classes, They were so important to health and well-being.” (Paticipant 2018)

“The health benefits of dancing for seniors range from improving your physical health to creating strong social connections that increase your sense of well-being” (Paljug 2017).

  4. Prior to class ensure you have a safe space to dance in and move away any hazardous objects. If you feel any discomfort you must inform the teacher and stop immediately.
  5. We recommend joining each session 10 minutes prior to class to ensure your video and sound are working. Before class begins, click the speaker’s view option and press the mute button.
