Brain Health Dance Social

Brain Health Dance Social 
Dance, Science, Creativity, and Community
Thursday, September 21 | 1:30 – 3:00 PM 

Free Registration Here

You’re invited to an afternoon of dance, movement, and storytelling connecting brain health and community! 

Join dancer, creative aging teaching artist, and Atlantic Fellow for Equity in Brain Health, Magda Kaczmarska, for an afternoon exploring the connection of science and dance.

On September 21, World Alzheimer’s Awareness Day, we will learn some of the science behind how dance, movement and creativity make us stronger, more adaptive, and engaged in the world around us.

The session will finish with a dance class where we’ll explore the many ways to share our stories through words and movement. Designed by Kaczmarska, the class is evidence-informed and applies the research connecting dance and brain health while applying fitness recommendations for older adults, creating a safe and fun space for creativity and community.

No prior dance experience required. All are welcome. Dance activities can be done seated or standing.

This program is a collaboration between DanceStream Projects, the 14th Street Y, Sirovich Center for Balanced Living, NYU Langone’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, and NYU Langone’s Related Dementias Family Support Program.
