Taking part in a dance party is seriously good for you at a time when it can be more challenging to get exercise. As revealed in a new report by the AARP-founded Global Council on Brain Health, music and dance are effective treatment tools for a wide range of age-related diseases, including Parkinson's disease and dementia. According to experts, both activities stimulate the brain, relieve stress, build social connections and combat the isolation that plagues so many of us these days.
So why not give yourself a pleasure double play by joining Debbie Allen, the Village People and some surprise guests at the “Dancing Through the Decades” event on July 18? It's open to AARP members and nonmembers of all ages. It won't cost you a cent — but to get in on the healthy fun, you must register ahead of time at daybreaker.com/aarp.
