Work at CSI for the day with our new Lounge Pass!

A dance party for senior citizens!

When CSI member Jacqueline Burke was researching brain injury and dementia, she learned there are three enjoyable ways to stay alert: music, socialization, and dancing.

These things are “critical to promoting stronger brain health,” she said. “And it’s fun.”

This research inspired her to create Club Platinum. This event welcomes folks 65+ of all mobility levels and all cognitive levels to dance the evening away to the hits of their generation. They are holding their first pop-up on September 27 at CSI Regent Park.

Get your tickets here!

Need more reasons to check it out? Health Canada recommends two and a half hours of moderate intensity aerobic activity each week, and amount only 37% of seniors are doing. There are also concerns that people over 65 can become socially isolated.

The clear solution to all of these problems is a dance party! As the poster says, even if you just dance with your hands, you should still come have a great night out. Caregivers or guides are free, and limited income tickets are available upon request.

(Not a senior, but think this still sounds like a pretty good time? Club Platinum is looking for volunteers to help set up, tear down, serve food and drinks, guide folks and make them feel comfortable!)
