Dance therapy for people with Parkinson's has recently become very popular. But I know it would not work for me.
Nonetheless, when I'm alone in my office or on the back porch, music can get me up and moving... even though I embarrass myself. Here's a recent example I permitted (with much trepidation) to have captured on my cell phone:
I have several CDs that get me up and moving. Naturally, this one is a winner:
Believe it or not, I "dance" to "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina."
Oh how I wished I could have had gotten out on the floor at the Sunday tea dances at the Lost and Found after I came out in 1978. But that 49-year-old klutz never had the nerve. But now I can... on my back porch.
Classical music can get me up and moving, too. "Rach 2" will do it.
Conducting Wagner's "Tannhauser Overture" can give me as good a workout as dancing to Diana Ross's "Touch Me in the Morning."
