Movement is exercise and can serve to reduce the prevalence of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and certain types of cancer conditions that disproportionately impact communities of color. Dancing can help lower stress and improve overall well-being.
The goal of this symposium is to encourage the participants to believe they have the ability to incorporate movement into their daily living. DANCE as opposed to EXERCISE as a form of daily movement will be emphasized for Youth and Adults.
Workshop topics will address weight management, controlling stress, diabetes prevention and depression. Movement will be emphasized during sessions.
Workshop topics will explore how to be healthy in mind, body and spirit. Sessions will also address suicide prevention and depression.
