Dance your way to good health

To the editor:

The Register & Bee’s May 21 front-page feature article by correspondent Amie Knowles deserves an “Eye-Opener” award and challenge to folks in our area. Knowles describes how residents at Chatham Health and Rehabilitation Center culminated a week of special activities with a “Second Chance” prom dance that previous Friday.

Amy Brooks, the center’s program director, stated that the dance is a favorite of the residents. Congratulations on a choice well considered and action taken!

Further, I would encourage the residents of Danville and the surrounding area to enjoy our regularly scheduled dance every Friday night at Ballou Park Nature Center here in Danville. As a board member of Council on Aging Youthfully, I know, and strongly endorse, the valuable benefits attained by dancing in a non-competitive, friendly atmosphere. It is a fun exercise!

For only $5 admission, you can dance to music provided by a band from 7 ’til 9:30 p.m.

Council in Aging Youthfully is a nonprofit affiliate of Danville Parks and Recreation. If additional information is needed, please contact me at (434) 489-3122.
