Dance Therapy Improves Seniors’ Balance

From Who Moved My Dentures? Essential Information for Boomers on Healthcare, Aging and Caregiving

Two recent studies conducted by University of Missouri researchers found that participation in dance-based therapy can improve balance and gait in older adults. Improved functionality among seniors can decrease their risk of falling and reduce costly injuries.

The researchers used a dance-therapy program called The Lebed Method (TLM), which includes a combination of low-impact dance steps choreographed to music.

Participants reported that they enjoyed the sessions and wanted to continue the program.
