Getting Footloose at The Senior Activity Center

Swing your partner round and round and mosey on over to the Senior Activity Center for Line Dancing!

Line Dancing made a comeback to the Southlake Senior Activity Center this June. Every Monday at 11:00 AM SAC members gather to partake in this fun, low impact, and healthy activity for those that love to dance. Seniors Line Dancing teaches members the different steps of line dancing while guaranteeing a hopping time.

It’s no secret that dancing is a fun pastime for those that feel the rhythm; however, it is also a fantastic exercise for seniors to do. There is a myriad of health benefits to dancing in your golden years.

Not only does dancing get you moving in a low impact way, but it is also a great social activity. We all know that our Southlake Seniors love being social, so we are happy to provide multiple social opportunities for the senior community.

Not only does dancing provide a fun social opportunity, but it also has many health benefits. These include improving mobility, strength, and balance, reducing muscle pain, minimizing stress and anxiety, and maintaining good heart and cardiovascular health.

With all the benefits associated with dancing, no wonder these classes have been filling up quickly! Make sure to keep up with the Senior Center Webpage to stay on top of all the activities available this summer! Register for an activity at the Senior Center here.
