What is Golden Ballroom?

Golden Ballroom is an exercise program for the elderly who reside in long-term care facilities, incorporating intentional movement using classic ballroom dances with specific era/genre music and rhythms. Golden Ballroom was created by Pamela Dutton, a dance professional with many years of experience in the Arts. Pamela Dutton has teamed up with Arts in Motion to further develop the outreach of this program. We are excited to bring this new service to our community and look forward to working with you and your long-term care facility and its residents.

The Golden Ballroom curriculum includes a one hour sessions. Participants will be taught in a manner that is conducive to their physical abilities (chair and walker choreography provided as well). Individual steps will be taught to encourage the leaders and followers’ decision making when on the dance floor.

Each session will include a five minute warm up and a five minute cool-down stretching exercise. The middle of the session will consist of two 25 minute lessons that, for example, may include the Waltz and Rumba.

We strive to provide a fun and energetic atmosphere where individuals can learn to build confidence, improve social skills, reduce stress, get much needed exercise, and improve vascular function and improve memory as many studies have shown.
