Cogni DANCE & MOVEMENT
Dance, creativity, improvisation and choreographic work.
Workshop that invites people living with Mild cognitive impairment.
Gentle and adapted movements; past and present dance styles on all kinds of rhythms; varied and catchy music.
These movements and dances foster improvements in flexibility, balance, coordination and creativity. The training allows muscles reinforcement. Through the work of small choreographic sequences, one awakens and vivifies the spirit.
Let's have fun!
The results are numerous and quantifiable: Stimulation and maintenance of cognitive learning, self-confidence, quickened reflexes, well-being, mobility, stamina, improved cardiovascular functions, maintenance of a healthy bone structure, positive effect on the Immune system and more...

""... I saw beautiful faces radiate with large smiles during your expressive dance class... With your choice of movements, rhythms and your great music you can create a warm atmosphere.
It's a good time for those people who have the quality to live in the present moment and to help us learn to do just the same in their company. "
