BALLROOM DANCINGwas effective@staving off the progression ofAlzheimers
disease.It is postulated that the combination of exercise learning of step
patterns& social interaction confers this remarkable preventive power to
dancers! Dance improves our memory by making us recall steps, routines and
dance patterns making it a great mental exercise for our brains. The big
benefit is that increasing mental exercise keeps your mind young, quick,
alert and open."There is nothing more notable about Socrates than that he
found time to learn music and dancing, and thought it was time well
spent."If I am what I have&if I lose what I have who then am I? only truly
affluent are those who do not want more than they have.
