National Dance Day is fast approaching. The event kicks off on  July 29th. Established in 2010 by Dizzy Feet co-founder, Nigel Lythgoe, National Dance Day is an annual celebration dedicated to dance, that encourages Americans of all ages to incorporate dance into their lives. By creating a focused day of celebration, Dizzy Feet Foundation aims to educate the public about dance and its many benefits, as well as make dance accessible and inclusive to everyone.
Dizzy Feet Foundation (DFF) believes that participation in dance connects the mind and body, promotes health and wellbeing, connects us with others and enables us to find joy through dance and movement. Participating in dance events is great for physical as well as mental well being. Dancing helps to increase the heart rate and respiratory rate for better cardiovascular and respiratory health. Dancing helps to develop strong leg and core muscles. Dance moves can promote mobility and flexibility at the joints and muscles. Dancing can also challenge ones balance and stability. Furthermore, dancing is a great way to socially interact with people of all age groups. For most, dancing is a way to express yourself and enjoy freedom at the same time. National Dance Day (NDD) is a day of celebrating dance, in all its forms, and takes place annually on the last Saturday in July. Medical professionals like doctors, physician assistants and physical therapists suggest that those folks in the again population who want to participate in National Dance Day would do well to practice a few senior balance exercises before the big day comes to help enhance steadiness with various dance moves.

Senior Balance Exercises For National Dance Day

     Older adults who desire to participate in the wonderful National Dance Day are highly encourage  by healthcare providers to practice senior balance exercises every day to improve their balance and minimize the possibility of a fall. Since falls can be devastating for those  in the aging generation, it is essential to take just a few minutes of time out of your day to practice specific stability routines. One such equilibrium routine that you can perform in the comfort of your own home involves standing on one foot while swinging the other foot slowly forwards and backwards or side to side. This equilibrium routine mimics the natural manner that we strand on one foot and swing the other foot forwards as we walk. As you practice this exercise you will be working on a combination of static and dynamic steadiness techniques that translate to improving stability with all walking and standing movement activities. You can learn how to practice this precise steadiness routine as well as learn how to accurately rehearse other senior balance exercises by following the direction of a knowledgeable physical therapist in the exercise for balance DVD.
