Celebrating Human Connection Through Dance

Please note: Due to the current public emergency, all senior dance classes will take place online through Zoom. Classes will run Tuesday and Thursdays at 11am. Email Dina at for a link to class and follow us on social media to stay up to date with Dance Into Light's classes and rehearsals. 

The Nursing and Rehabilitation Home Performance Program provides free and high-quality access to the performing arts for people who are nursing home bound or in a rehabilitation center. Dina Denis and DIL have been providing these enriching experiences for seniors since 2003.

The Seniors Dance! Program is a chair based dance program designed to relieve stress, elevate mood, increase endurance, balance, coordination and flexibility. We use breathing techniques, dance-based strengthening and stretching exercises along with skillful choreography for our students' overall mind and body wellness.
