There are very few ways to exercise that are as pleasurable as dance. The music seems to help dancers along and before you know it, you have burned calories and become a little more coordinated in the process. Ballroom dance instructor Anne Marie Duld has developed a great afternoon class for seniors interested in a low impact exercise hour as well as an opportunity for socializing.

A student of championship dancer Amanda Showell, Duld has been teaching for several years. She is frequently featured in ballroom dance showcase events and has taught at the Academy Arts Museum in Easton, Maryland and the Centre for the Arts in Centreville, Maryland. She has designed this class specifically with senior dancers in mind.
