Boy do I know all the positive benefits of dance! I’ve reconnected with my love of dance since I’ve retired and I now teach many forms of dance to those over the age of 65 whether they are dancing to showtimes, line dancing, taking ballet or dancing with their arms and torsos to uplifting and fun songs. My motto is –Dance On!

I just presented a research paper, “Lines in Motion: Line Dancing in Community, and Health,” for the Southern Sociological Society, Atlanta Georgia, April 2016. I am a medical sociologist and epidemiologist by training.
