Try Zumba Gold

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Zumba, per the company website, Zumba is “an exhilarating, effective, easy-to-follow, Latin-inspired, calorie-burning dance fitness-party.”  I might simplify that explanation to “it’s Jazzercise, but with Latin Music,” but that’s just me. 

In any case, Zumba Gold is their class specifically for older adults.   Again, per the company website, Zumba Gold: 

“takes the Zumba formula and modifies the moves and pacing to suit the needs of the active older participant, as well as those just starting their journey to a fit and healthy lifestyle. What stays the same are all the elements the Zumba Fitness-Party is known for: the zesty Latin music, like salsa, merengue, cumbia and reggaeton; the exhilarating, easy-to-follow moves; and the invigorating, party-like atmosphere. Active older adults want camaraderie, excitement and fitness as a regular part of their weekly schedule. Zumba Gold is the perfect fit. It’s a dance-fitness class that feels friendly, and most of all, fun.”

Zumba gold is not specifically for those with memory loss, but those int he mild stage of the disease should be able to get the hang of it, especially if a friend or family member goes with them to help out.
