Benefits of Exercising and Dancing

1. Increased physical fitness promotes cardiovascular strength, flexibility, muscular strength, coordination, balance, posture, and sharpens alertness.

2. Initiates new thought patterns with a "neurological workout" as memory is engaged with sequencing steps; contributes to a sense of achievement; encourages a healthy environment where participants learn to support each other emotionally and physically. Dance class has the benefits of an exercise class with an additional "kick" of moving to great Latin tunes.

3. Participation in music and dance therapy builds self-confidence and self-esteem, improves socialization skills, enhance happiness and joy. Enhances aesthetic awareness and grace while learning easy dance sequences and stretches designed to address balance, flexibility and coordination.

4. People with special needs are among the most disenfranchised in our society. Participation in a current activity promotes well being and normalization.

Our Mission

The mission of the Juan Carlos Organization is to stimulate joy, acceptance and achievement for people of all ages with physical, sensory or cognitive challenges through guided dance and rhythmic exercise programs.
