BUILDING STRONGER AND HEALTHIER

COMMUNITIES ONE DANCE AT A TIME!
AND HEALTHIER

Our mission is to provide adults over 55 equitable access to the many benefits of social dance, completely free of charge. We strive to improve the health and wellness of all of our dancers while building community and connection.

We currently target underserved neighborhoods and at-risk populations, bringing this fun and educational program directly to our participants. Additionally, we now offer online classes providing continued education and socialization, while staying safe at home.

We're constantly seeking out new partner locations and look forward to working with any organization to help reach as many older adults as possible. 

If you or your organization are interested in hosting or sponsoring a program, please email silvershoesdanceclub@gmail.com
