Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

In this poster, we report findings of a study that describes ballroom dance as serious leisure in relation to successful aging in a sample of 32 older adults. The results of the study provide therapists with suggestions for using dance patterns to promote greater physical activity in older adult populations.
