The Cool Mix of Dancing, Seniors and Technology

The Cool Mix of Dancing, Seniors and Technology

Exercise – it’s such a well documented benefit to positive aging.

And to help support seniors in getting some exercise, a pilot project was launched with Canada’s National Ballet School.

Through the use of live video technology, dance classes were filmed and streamed to the small town of Ennismore in Ontario, Canada.

The intention of the pilot program was to not only engage the mind and bodies of the local seniors but to also test the technology and see if this type of program had a positive impact on reducing social isolation.

With falls being a major challenge for seniors, this program also wanted to discover whether this is a cost effective way to help seniors to become stronger and more agile and reduce their incidence of falls.
