Clients at Arcare Pimpama participated in Seated Dancing during the preventative lockdown period.
Seated Dancing is a great way for them to improve their range of motion, muscle tone and flexibility.
It also brings them a lot of joy and laughter as they dance among friends at the residence.
The upbeat music always lifts their moods and brings a smile to their faces.
Seated dance at Arcare Pimpama is a great low-impact alternative to exercise for individuals facing mobility impairments.
Particular types of music or movement can even bring back fond memories of when clients attended dances in their younger years.
As they danced, clients spoke about first loves, friendships and the good old days.
