UCALL in Partnership with the Union College Theater and Dance Department Offers Move to Dance - Dance to Move: An Adult Dance Class
Thursdays, March 30 – June 1, 2023
11:15 - 12:30 p.m.
Henle Studio, Union College
This 10-week program for adults age 55+ will take students through a gentle dance-based warmup focusing on movement and exercises that can be practiced outside the class. Movement will draw from principles of ballet, and modern dance, incorporating exercises for greater body awareness including the instructor’s personal knowledge gained from physical therapy, yoga and as a licensed massage therapist. As our bodies age, we tend to stop using certain muscle groups. This causes loss of strength, flexibility, proprioception, balance and ultimately, a loss of freedom to move… and dance! Consciously including specific exercises into the warm-up and choreography of the class helps us to maintain our ability to move and dance more freely. Along with this there is an emphasis on experiencing the joy and sheer pleasure of moving our bodies while keeping them healthy. Instructor: Maxine Lindig Lautenberg
