The Power of Dance! Audrey Albert King, Dance Music Therapist, LMHC will visit the Jenks Memory Café to teach us a few new dance moves; easily adaptable for all levels and proven wonderfully beneficial for all ages to boost brain activity. This can be done in a chair. No dance experience is necessary.
Dancing keeps the mind healthy, as well as the body. The benefits of dancing are long lasting, leaving you feeling vibrant even after the activity is over. Join us in the dance to be inspired, uplifted and heal in community. Come for gentle exercises and enjoyment. *A separate caregiver support group shall be offered at that time.
* The Memory Café is a place for individuals and their families or caregivers to come and participate in an organized activity, listen to a guest speaker, hear a variety of music types or gather support from others in similar situations.

Judy has studied performance at Shakespeare & Co. in Lennox, MA, and at The Globe Theater in London. She has also been teaching a Shakespearean and Modern Drama class at Winchester High School for 20 years. Class size limited to 20.
