Words for KUPUNA HOUR with yellow flower background

Please join Jill Thompson of Lā‘ie as she hosts a Kūpuna Hour.

September is the month to move! Come and dance for health and wellness.

From the website SeniorsMatter.com, “Dancing benefits the elderly in many ways both physically and mentally. In this study, elderly people who dance improve their motor skills and more. This activity is something that can be a part of any elderly person’s day when modified to meet the specific person or population.

Aging is a part of life, but that does not mean people must experience physical and cognitive decline as a result. There are many ways to fight such a decline, and one of the most delightful is dancing! This type of activity is becoming popular because of the many body areas it impacts positively. In a six-month study following a group of elderly people who took part in a one-hour-a-week dance class, the following positive changes were noted as to how dancing benefits the elderly:

  • Better posture
  • Quicker reaction times
  • More agility
  • Sharper minds
  • Better overall sense of well being

Dancing helped the elderly people in the study improve their motor skills and balance too.”
