“A new and exciting form of fitness for older adults.” Movement Zone Dance

 

You have the opportunity to participate in the extremely popular Silver Top Groove Therapy (STGT) program at Movement Zone Dance Studio. A beginner dance class taught by qualified instructors Sarah (Sas) Cook and Richard Mayes, known as the 'Dancing Doctor.'

STGT provides the benefits of dance to people of varying physical and psychological abilities in a safe, fun, and non-judgmental environment.  With all the benefits, along with the music that takes us back to our younger, fitter selves, dance allows for movement regardless of injury or impairment. By dancing, people can achieve that balance of health from the inside out, from the physical to the emotional. 

In STGT, traditional dance techniques are incorporated with intergraded exercises to improve body movement, flexibility, strength, and interconnection of mind, body & spirit while incorporating Funk, Jazz, Contemporary & Rock 'n' Roll. 

Most importantly it’s FUN!
