Dance Nova Scotia, the province’s umbrella organization for dance and dancers, has developed what we believe may be the first professional development workshop in Canada for dance teachers interested in working with older adults.
Dance for Health: Seniors is an interactive day, designed to spark ideas and conversations about creating and adapting dance forms to suit older bodies and learning styles. Drawing on health care professionals, health educators and fellow instructors who are already running successful seniors’ dance programs, we’re helping our members gain the confidence to reach out to this growing and important demographic. In the process, we’re hoping to help keep Nova Scotians healthier, longer.
