Comments on April Dances
Thank you for a wonderful experience!  It felt so good to be Dancing again.   Love & Light, Indu Heather Eilering,

I had a ball doing the dances. Thanks for allowing me to share the ukulele. The people are fantastic, the food is healthy & the grounds and birds are lovely.  You have one of the nicest homes I've ever been in. Thanks for sharing your joy with us!                      Nickie

Hi -D-Hita!     I really enjoyed the dance at the Unitarian Fellowship.  Don't think I've ever done the same dances two days in a row... that was part of the good energy.  It was a lovely time, & my friend really enjoyed it.  
Much love, Tee Lee

Dance Strengthens the Brain
by Ruth Buczynski, PhD
Dance improves motor & cognitive function, mental symptoms, & overall quality of life.
Dance develops flexibility & confidence
stimulates mental activity linking mind to body
focuses attention on eyes, ears & touch as tools to assist in movement & balance
breaks isolation, tells stories
sparks creativity, increases rhythm
unleashes joy!
