Dance For Your Heart
Memorial Hospital is planning its next Healthy Woman event, Dance For Your Heart. This fun event will be held on Saturday, February 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at the York Expo Center (Old Main building). The event will combine the fun of dancing to different kinds of music with health screenings, pamper yourself activities and shopping to make a “don’t miss” event for women.
Dance For Your Heart will include dance demonstrations for two types of Zumba and Belly Dancing plus, women’s heart health information, health screenings and pamper yourself activities, including hand and chair massage as well as wine and cider tasting. A wide range of vendors will be selling their products including jewelry, hand bags, make-up and more. There will also be a grand prize drawing for a $500 Galleria shopping spree. You must be present to win. (You must be present for the speaker and complete a short questionnaire to be eligible for all prizes.)
Did you know…
Nearly 500,000 women die each year of cardiovascular disease, making it the leading cause of death for American women. One in two women will die of heart disease.
This event focuses on dance as a way to take steps for a healthier life; dancing can burn as many calories as swimming, walking, or riding a bike (as many as 200 to 400 calories per hour). If done on a regular basis, there are many health benefits such as weight maintenance or weight loss, blood pressure and lowered cholesterol, increased energy, decreased sadness and depression, increased coordination and muscle strength, and an overall sense of well-being.
Special thanks to our sponsors: Body Rhythms Life Fitness, Dancers of the Nile and the York YWCA.
