Or start dancing, as the case may be.
The first lady recently turned fifty, and the big news seems to be that she intends to keep dancing. Her friends say that she can still “shake a tail feather.”
I would hope so! Since most people live well into their eighties, fifty is young. And fifty is a great age to resume dancing if you used to dance years ago or to learn to dance, if you’ve never danced and wished you could. At fifty, you’ve raised the kids and established your career; it’s time to do something for yourself. Dance!
Dancing is a great way to make new friends and get a little exercise at the same time. In fact, a 21-year study led by the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in NYC, found that frequent dancing reduced the risk of dementia, reduced stress, increased flexibility, increased mental capacity, and more. Plus it’s fun! It feels good to move to the music.
This area has more dance opportunities than you might think; we have line dancing, square dancing, ballroom dancing, country couples dancing, and my personal favorite, international folk dancing. There’s something for everybody, and if you choose to try folk dancing, you’ll find that we do it all, sooner or later, because we do all kinds of dances from all around the world.
So shake those tail feathers! See you on the dance floor!
