BeMoved® and Gentle BeMoved® are designed to improve the strength, balance, flexibility, coordination, and overall health of all participants.
Developed by Sherry Zunker, BeMoved® and Gentle BeMoved® are specifically intended for participants with with limited mobility due to age, health, or injury. Each class includes themed music (such as the Roaring 20s, Latin, Country Rhythm, and Blues). BeMoved® classes are conducted from a standing position, while Gentle BeMoved® is primarily conducted from a seated position. Each class includes a warm-up, a themed genre portion of dance combinations accessible for all participants regardless of previous experience in dance, and a cool down.
Participants in BeMoved® and Gentle BeMoved® have reported increased balance and flexibility, improved sleep, and better overall health because of their time in class. Participants also report that they find their time in class enjoyable—even fun!
