What do we offer?
One way that the Be Well Plus center promotes the health and wellness of patients and individuals within the community is through physical activity. We offer complimentary dance lessons from a professional ballroom dance teacher on Tuesdays from 1pm – 4pm, Thursdays from 10am – 11am, and Fridays after hours from 5pm – 7pm.
A comprehensive study from a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Program states: Available evidence suggests that physical exercise programs can also improve cognitive function and enhance physical function and activity for frail older adults or those with chronic health conditions. At Be Well Plus, we encourage the health of the community and hope to offer the resources needed to improve both mental and physical well-being.
What is dance therapy?
The American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) defines dance/movement therapy as the psychotherapeutic use of movement to promote emotional, social, cognitive and physical integration of the individual.
Dance/movement therapy is:
Focused on movement behavior as it emerges in the therapeutic relationship. Expressive, communicative, and adaptive behaviors are all considered for group and individual treatment. Body movement, as the core component of dance, simultaneously provides the means of assessment and the mode of intervention for dance/movement therapy.
Practiced in mental health, rehabilitation, medical, educational and forensic settings, and in nursing homes, day care centers, disease prevention, health promotion programs and in private practice.
Effective for individuals with developmental, medical, social, physical and psychological impairments.
Used with people of all ages, races and ethnic backgrounds in individual, couples, family and group therapy formats
