Hospital is planning its
next Healthy Woman event, Dance For Your Heart.
This fun event will be held on Saturday, February 25 from 9 to 11:30 a.m.
at the Wyndham Garden (2000 Loucks Road) in York. The event will combine the fun of dancing to
different kinds of music with health screenings, pamper yourself activities and
more to make it a “don’t miss” event for women.
Dance For Your Heart will include dance demonstrations for Zumba,
Hip Hop dance, Philippine dance, and Belly dancing; women’s heart health
educational tips; health screenings; hand and chair massages, light
refreshments; door prizes; a chance to take a “selfie” for the American Heart
Association’s Red Couch Tour; and more. There
will also be a prize drawing for a $100 Visa gift card (and two $50 Visa gift
cards). You must be present to win. (You must be present for the speaker and
complete a short questionnaire to be eligible for all prizes.)
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.
The event focuses on dance as a way to take steps for a
healthier life because 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 cholesterol management (lowering), increased
energy, decreased sadness and depression, increased coordination and muscle
strength, and an overall sense of well-being.
Special thanks to our dance instructors: Body Rhythms Life Fitness, Dancers of the
Nile, the Philippine American Heritage Council Dance Troupe and Weary
