Dance for Minds is an empowering initiative to inform and inspire people across the globe to make their cognitive health a priority. Dance for Minds is presented by Maria Shriver and The Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement. Blak & Blue Dance Project is partnering with Maria Shriver to raise money, bring information and attention to the importance of caring for our most precious asset: our minds. 

This is part of the three-month fundraising period (starting March 27) to create awareness about brain health and how we can protect our cognitive health with age.

 

Top 5 reasons to join Dance for Minds.

1. Promote Awareness for Brain Health
2. Create Multi-Generational Family Connections
3. Encourage Philanthropy in Kids, Teens, and your Community. 
4. Raise funds for Alzheimer's Disease Research
5. It's Fun and Rewarding

Get Inspired

Here’s what we will be doing and we hope you will be inspired to join the movement:

  • Start a community inter-generational dance class once a month or maybe just start with one in June

  • Have a Dance-A-Thon during the fundraising period and donate to Dance for Minds. (How many of us sold cookies outside of a market in the cold last month? This is much more fun!) Use the Dance for Minds website and tool box…have the kids get sponsors.

  • Take some dancers to a retirement home in your area and let them perform and dance with the seniors. It’s mostly chair dancing with arm movement, so even the little ones can do it.

  • Post your event’s pictures and videos on our Dance for Minds - Dance Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/danceforminds/
