Dancing

What? Dancing
Who? Anyone!
Why? Not only is it fun, it is good exercise too! University of Sydney researchers are currently undergoing a research project with thirteen different aged care facilities in Sydney. They believe that regular dancing could reduce falls by up to 37%! Researcher Dr Merom says “Dance is a complex sensory motor rhythmic activity. It also has cognitive and social dimensions…[dancing] can address a wide range of…risk factors that contribute to falls.”
