Because Yes, You Can Dance! is dedicated to sharing the joys and benefits of dance, on August 26th we partnered with the University of Pittsburgh Medical School and the JCC in order to create a dance mixer between Pitt Medical Students and Senior Citizens.
Each Med Student and Senior were paired up to participate in a foxtrot and swing dance lesson taught by Chris Roth. Then there was an open free-style dance where attendees practiced their new moves with one another! The intent was to provide some social time for Pitt Med Students (specifically Geriatric Students) with Senior Citizens, who they work with in a professional setting everyday.
The smiles on the faces of every participant serve as evidence of the event’s success!
Due to it’s success, Yes, You Can Dance! & the University of Pittsburgh Medical School hope to make this a yearly event!
