Kairos Dancing Heart Training – WOW!!

We never stop learning at Kairos’ Dance and our latest training session exceeded all expectations. Attendees included staff from the facilities where the Dancing Heart program has been implemented, professional artists and interns, and volunteers. Maria and her team of wonderful teachers regularly provide opportunities for all of us to connect, share ideas and learn new ways to help our clients improve their cognitive and physical abilities. Getting together with others who use the principles of the Dancing Heart program and hearing their success stories is inspiring.

The morning session provided the participants with new methods of incorporating voice, dance and storytelling into their daily activities. In the afternoon, we broke up into small groups. Each group developed a story with complementary movement and then performed for all the attendees. Along with getting more great suggestions for the program, there were lots of laughs as each group acted out their story!

We came away from the training with renewed vigor and energy and, as always, a deep commitment to the power of the Kairos Dancing Heart program to transform lives; to nurture and heal; to create community and; to change culture and attitudes about aging.



The mission of Kairos Dance Theatre is to transform and revitalize individuals and communities. We work with older adults in intergenerational settings to liberate the healing power of interactive dance and story. We achieve our mission by engaging the skills of professional teaching artists.
