This festive, new fundraising event for the 'Walk' is poised to leverage heightened Alzheimer's awareness, while drawing attention to a positive development in Alzheimer's research -- the potential of dancing to make a profound difference.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) August 21, 2014
Crossword puzzles may no longer be the gold standard for protecting against dementia. A 21-year research study led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, asserts that frequent dancing provides the greatest reduction of risk against dementia – significantly more so than any other cognitive or physical activity.
That’s why Senior Housing Expert, Cyndi Cummings, broker associate with Keller Williams Realty’s Lakeway office and a dedicated participant in the annual “Walk to End Alzheimer’s,” is co-sponsoring “Dance for the Walk” this fall.
“As founder of the Austin Senior Resource Alliance, I am committed to sharpening the community’s collaborative focus on serving this rapidly growing segment of the population,” Cummings said. “By scheduling the “Dance for the Walk” on the evening before Austin’s annual 'Walk to End Alzheimer’s,' our team's festive new fundraising event for the 'Walk' is poised to leverage heightened Alzheimer’s awareness, while drawing attention to a positive development in Alzheimer’s research – the potential of dancing to make a profound difference.”
Co-hosted by Go Dance in their North Austin location, the event will feature Austin’s top Big Band, the Republic of Texas Big Band. The event will be BYOB with a $10 entrance donation.
Go Dance specializes in partner dancing and teaches a wide variety of genres, including: Swing, Salsa, Country Western, Ballroom, American and Argentine Tango. More than 50 group classes are offered each week, along with social dances, specialty workshops, private lessons and group classes.
The Dance for the Walk will take place October 11, 2014 from 7:30-10:30 p.m. at the Go Dance North Location, 2525 W. Anderson Lane, Ste 530, Austin, Texas 78757. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.danceforthewalk.com.
