A new study says there’s one thing every grandchild should do to improve their grandparents' emotional and mental health. Experts say every grandchild should take their grandparent dancing. A study found that dance therapy can improve a senior’s fitness and emotional health. It also affected the attitudes of the younger generation. And the classes helped grandmothers form stronger bonds with their grandchildren.

Researchers say dancing is a great way to improve muscle strength, balance, endurance, as well as reduce anxiety and depression. They also believe dance therapy for seniors can also help in preventing dementia.

Sign up for a class, throw on the radio and have a dance party in the family room and in the backyard!
