Rhythm Break Cares (RBC) takes a unique and highly effective approach to address the widespread and immediate needs of individuals with Alzheimer’s, associated dementias, and their caregivers, by engaging them in partner dance as a means to improve their quality of life. Since 2009, RBC has successfully offered this interesting form of dance therapy, which capitalizes on the demonstrated benefits of music, movement and touch. Our sessions provide a rare opportunity for patients and their caregivers to escape some of the burdens associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, in a stress-free environment where they can observe, participate and be entertained.
Our dance artists are professionally trained Ballroom and Modern dancers that have undergone specific training to work with the Alzheimer’s, dementia, and elderly communities. We hold sessions in a variety of ways offering social functions at our midtown location, on-site sessions at dementia centers, private lessons, and instruction for caregivers and caregiver group classes. Some of our current on site locations and centers include; New York Memory Center, 80th St Residence, Hearthstone, The Esplanade, and The National Alzheimer’s Association.
At Rhythm Break Cares, our mission is to help as many individuals that we can through the restorative power of music, movement and touch; while also in partnership with assisted living residences, researchers and other organizations working towards the same cause.
