Lisa's Dance To Health

In so many cases, the elimination of physical education in schools is creating adverse impacts on the health of students. To combat that phenomenon communities need to seek some seamless alternatives. Adults, whether young or advanced in age are faced with one challenge or another; like heavy work schedules or health issues that prevent regular participation in athletic activities.
Certain forms of dance can remedy the situation. The dance repertoires provided by this program not only do so but is also an enjoyable pastime, that has proven to help adults, children and teens develop self-confidence and mathematical skills through the rhythms. You learn to appreciate the history of dance, team-building, as well as a scientific appreciation for dance, body and motion range.
