I Can’t Dance But I Can Wiggle My Toes!!

I had my first volunteer day at the Sholom Home Adult Day Program in St. Paul this week and it was quite a treat to meet new participants.  Kairos implemented The Dancing Heart™ at Sholom Home several weeks ago but today was my first time with this group.

As is typical with adult day programs the range of abilities is wide but the participants were tracking in whatever way they were capable. After the session was over, we asked Sarah, one of the oldest in the group what she liked about The Dancing Heart™.  She replied, “Oh, it’s so much fun. I can’t dance but I can wiggle my toes and move my feet while I’m in my chair!”  Now that’s the kind of positive attitude we love to see from The Dancing Heart™ participants!!
