An Observational Study on the Effects of Ballroom Dancing Filipino Elderly with Mild Cognitive Impairment

About 10 to 15 percent of adults age 65 and older are believed to have mild cognitive impairment, a condition characterized by memory problems beyond those associated with normal aging.  Such disability impacts on the elderly’s daily living and quality of life. A  program, such as dance that are tailor- fitted to the demands, interests and lifestyle of the Filipino elderly, and sustainable for the long term may help elderly with MCI. This study will evaluate whether ballroom dancing could effectively delay or even reverse, the progression of MCI in elderly. It will also examine the effects of social partner dancing on the executive control processes and overall cognitive function of Filipino elderly with mild cognitive impairment.
