Anyone can dance! How the art of dance can become part of the business of creative aging.

Judith started her professional life as an actor and dancer in the 1960s, then switched gears to author healthcare books and direct copy for pharmaceutical websites at several different ad agencies. When she was laid off at 65, with one hip replacement done and another coming, she decided to return to the world of dance, but in a different role.

As she worked her body back to its natural moving state, she wanted to offer the same possibilities to others. She was trained as a Dance for PD® teacher in the techniques developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s Group, but felt that she wanted to take a slightly different direction. Her program, ANYONE CAN DANCE®, serves those with movement restrictions or cognitive impairment, whether they are on their feet, in chairs, wheelchairs or walkers. Judith is a member of the Lifetime Arts Teaching Artist Roster.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
