Seniors

Aurinkorytmi and SENIO -rivitanssi®

Founded in 1997, Aurinkorytmi specializes in teaching dance and especially line dancing. SENIO -rivitanssi® in Finland is a method based on line dance instruction and dance selection specifically directed at teaching line dancing to seniors.  Kirsi-Marja Vinberg is one of the pioneers of teaching line dancing for seniors in Finland. Kirsi-Marja Vinberg has developed a form of line dancing suitable for especially seniors and elderly people. A slow, specific style of teaching line dancing takes into  account the challenges in moving, enabling seniors to learn balance and motor skills, improve their ability to concentrate and enhance their memory. Seniors get to enjoy the great benefits of line dancing!

What can seniors gain from line dancing?

Balance control

Concentration skills

Better coordination and  body control

Better muscular strength

Better MEMORY!

Better overall health

A spirited mood

Line dancing is suitable for seniors starting an exercise routine, as well as a rehabilitative exercise for example after a long illness. Line dancing can also slow the progression of some diseases (for example Parkinson’s disease). Your social life gets a boost as well thanks to classes and evening gatherings. You don’t need a partner to dance, so line dancing is suitable for single seniors. It’s great that men have also found this fun hobby! The dances and moves have been chosen keeping in mind seniors’ physical challenges. We cooperate continuously with health professionals.
