Movement for Everyone
ComMotion believes that everyone deserves an opportunity to experience the joy of dancing and movement. ComMotion provides classes for seniors of all abilities. Classes are taught live online, via on-demand video, or at your location. They can be adapted for nearly any size group and space, and can be taught in both English and Spanish.
“We do a lot of different activities here that provide a lot of movement and exercise, but there’s nothing like this for them. They’re dancing and they’re having a great time. I don’t know how to replicate it.”
Matt Frazier, Director, Ruth Sheets Adult Day Care
Dancing is good for your brain
A 2003 study in the New England Journal of Medicine by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine discovered that dance can decidedly improve brain health. According to the researchers, dancing involves both a mental effort and social interaction and that this type of stimulation helped reduce the risk of dementia.
Dancing is good for your body
- Dance is a great form of low impact exercise, adaptable for people of all abilities
- Dance improves strength, flexibility, balance, posture & coordination, which will help prevent falls
- Dance strengthens bones to reduce risk of osteoporosis
On an engagement survey comparing our programs to other regular group activities such as exercise and crafts, ComMotion scored an average of 11% higher than all other activities on measures of engagement, active participation, attitude, mood, and sleepiness.
This program is supported by the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.
