EVANSVILLE, IND. (04/16/2024) The University of Evansville’s (UE) Center for Innovation & Change, in collaboration with the Sol and Arlene Bronstein Foundation, is excited to announce the launch of the Silver Aces Dance Team, a unique opportunity for seniors aged 55 and above who are interested in socializing and dancing while experiencing the mental and physical health benefits that are associated.

In partnership with the UE Dance Company and UE’s physical therapy, physician assistance, and nursing programs, the Silver Aces program will offer dance lessons and health screenings to examine the impact of social dance on a wide range of wellness indicators. This innovative collaboration will celebrate the vibrancy and talent of older adults while underscoring UE’s commitment to inclusive, lifelong learning opportunities for everyone.

The inaugural session is scheduled for Sunday, April 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Southwestern Indiana Regional Council on Aging (SWIRCA), with subsequent sessions to follow. However, with only 20 spots available, interested individuals are encouraged to register early to secure their place or get on the wait list.
