Life Is Simple

dancing makes you smarter... here's some proof.

There was one important exception: the only physical activity to offer protection against dementia was frequent dancing.

Reading - 35% reduced risk of dementia
Bicycling and swimming - 0%
Doing crossword puzzles at least four days a week - 47%
Playing golf - 0%
Dancing frequently - 76%.

That was the greatest risk reduction of any activity studied, cognitive or physical.

Come on out to the free dance class May 8th at 7:30 pm, Carling Heights Optimist Community Centre. It’s kind of like test driving a car to see if you’ll like it. Tell your family, friends, neighbours, co-workers and anyone else you can think of and let them know how much fun they could be having.

We will be delighted to have you join us! Take a look at the video to see if you might be interested. All you need is a pair of soft-soled shoes and a smile. See you then!
