The Movement for Memory series is a dance session based on body patterns that connect neurological processes with physical activity. There is a direct and quantifiable correlation between certain physical actions and improved brain function and memory, according to many research studies. In this low-intensity, interactive lesson for all people, all abilities and all ages, we will move as a group through facilitator-led relaxation, exercises, and expressive moments that support the brain-body connection. With material from the DanceAbility Method curriculum, participants will be encouraged to consider movement as a simple practice for clarity of mind. Jana Meszaros, Master DanceAbility Teacher, will lead. Jay Hall, Brain Dance ® practitioner will assist, and Rich Glauber’s live music will accompany.
There are TWO CHANCES each Tuesday to Move:
11am -12pm Outside at the Park Blocks during Farmer's Market1-2pm Indoors at HiFi Music Hall (with air conditioning)
EVENT TIMING: June 26th - Aug 14th
