Dancing Away Dementia

 

New research shows that dancing reduces incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s.

„New research published in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that dancing dramatically reduces the occurrence of dementia and Alzheimer`s disease. But not just any dancing will do. Freestyle dancing requires constant split-second, rapid-fire decision making, which is the key to maintaining intelligence because it forces your brain to regularly rewire its neural pathways, giving you greater cognitive reserve and increased complexity of neuronal synapses. Frequent freestyle dancing was shown by the study to reduce the risk of dementia by 76% – twice as much as reading – and playing sports or practicing choreographed dance sequences which had no benefit at all.“

Working with aging and its problems and possibilities will be a growing field in the future. Being able to work with these issues by bringing in a wide variety of methodologies is important for healthcare providers.
