Dancing away Alzheimer's at Southampton workshop

Wearing your dancing shoes may help you outrun Alzheimer's. Recent reports have shown that physical activity — especially dancing — can help prevent memory loss.

To learn more about Alzheimer's and the benefits of physical activity and dancing, the Alzheimer's Disease Resource Center and Hamptons AARP are holding a free workshop. You will learn how to recognize early signs of Alzheimer's and the difference between the disease and normal memory loss. There will also be a demonstration of LaBlast, a partner-free dance-fitness program that can hone both your body and mind. The event includes free cholesterol, vision and blood pressure screening.

The workshop is April 25 from 3 to 4 p.m. at 230 Elm catering hall in Southampton. For reservations, call 631-259-1385 or email info@hamptonsAARP.org.

After the workshop, there will be a separate dance social from 4-6 p.m. There is a fee of $10 if you want to attend that event.
