Sitdance Downunder Trailer 3.00:
Dancing is one of the great joys of life. Our elders remember 'dancing to their hearts content' when they were young. They can do so again with an appropriate designed programme.
Sitdance choreograps meaningful movements that relate to lyrics and or the essence of a piece of traditional music. Tutorials are filmed in the Outback of Australia. This holistic and integrated approach provides auditory, visual, and physical stimulation that activates voice, body, and soul. Meaningful and known movements engage cellular memory in the muscles. This reduces the reliance on brain memory, enabling those with early stages of dementia to participate.
