The 2013 project focused on the qualitative evaluation of the experiences of both teachers and participants with extremely positive findings and enthusiasm for the work to continue. This project aimed to measure the potential impact of a community-based dance intervention on overall daily activity levels, balance and quality of life in older adults.
The second phase of our innovative Dance for Lifelong Wellbeing project developed the research findings from the 2013 Dance for Lifelong Wellbeing project undertaken by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), contributing to and enhancing research in relation to dance for older adults.
How It All Began
I wrestled with the idea of writing a personal account of how my own mother played a part in the role of my Silver Swans® endeavor. I honestly was not in great shape when I decided to take the certification, and with other health issues, I wondered what the future would dictate. I did it anyway!
My mother has always been a guiding force for me, and even now afflicted with dementia, although many things are so very different, I discovered that hasn’t changed. I wanted to continue to be an inspiration even in her decline of course also knowing how important movement is for my own personal health and vitality, and in turn, she inspired me to keep moving, literally!
My reason for adding this anecdote is not to elicit pity or sympathy, it is to empower you to find something you love that will keep you moving, and even if you have doubts about your ability, do it anyway! Do it, whatever it is, to your best ability, have fun and that will be more than enough.
