Our Team Story
Get your groove on! Join our team for The Longest Day, a day that’s all about love for all those affected by Alzheimer's disease. On June 21, the Alzheimer's Association Southern Arizona Regional office will be dancing the day away to raise funds and awareness for the efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association.
Come dance with us! We're partnering with Fred Astaire Dance Studio, who is offering 30-minute dance lessons at their studio throughout the day. Ballroom dance incorporates basic principles of movement that are applicable to many physical activities. Not only is dancing a worthwhile physical activity, partner dancing has been shown to be effective in maintaining brain health and is also rich in intrinsic benefits including:
Improved Flexibility and Agility
Improved Balance Cardiovascular benefits
Stop in throughout the day to dance with us, learn some new moves and join our effort for a world without Alzheimer's disease. If you can't be with us in person, join us in solidarity and dance wherever you are. Tell us about where you are dancing and share your photos or videos. Consider making a contribution to our team in support of the the Longest Day and the care, support and research carried out by the Alzheimer's Association.
