What is BrainDance?
BrainDance is an excellent full body and brain warm-up that can be practiced by people of all ages and levels of ability. Developed by Anne Green Gilbert of the Creative Dance Center, the BrainDance sequences through eight fundamental movement patterns of early human development. Practicing BrainDance weekly or daily can help rewire and enhance connections within the sensori-motor system.
In this 45-minute program, Buffalo-based teaching artist Benjamin Berry will share his BrainDance knowledge in a fully accessible environment geared towards elders and adults with limited mobility. Benjamin will guide participants through multiple iterations of the exercises (including seated variations for all movements), educate them about the many benefits of the BrainDance, and share resources for them so that they may continue enjoying and exploring BrainDance in their daily life.
