Discover the Healing Art of Dance

Jan 27, 2017 01:52PM

Lynne Chervony Belsky, M.D. and Lisa Gold

Dancer/instructor Lisa Gold and dancer/doctor Lynne Chervony Belsky, M.D., will teach two new classes that begin January 24 at the CBG Institute for Dance & Health. Both have many years of teaching and healthcare experience that enables them to impart their passion for dance along with the knowledge of how this art form positively impacts well-being.

       Students may drop in to the classes at any point and attendance in the January 24 class is not required. Dance For Joy classes are ballet-based dance classes for cancer patients with the goal of healing body, mind and spirit. Time To Dance classes are for seniors over 55 to enjoy a non-judgmental atmosphere while learning to master a way to improve many aspects of life.

                Dancers will be able to optimize their overall quality of life with improved balance, flexibility, posture, strength and an overall sense of well-being. All classes take place in a dance studio with uplifting music. The pace becomes gradually challenging for participants as their bodies respond and recover.

The first class attended is free and drop-ins are welcome (registration required). See ad on page 33 and in the Community Resource Guide.
