The Arizona Commission on the Arts and the West Valley Arts Council are pleased to partner with Dance Exchange to bring a Creative Aging and Tools for Health training to Arizona. Part of the MetLife Foundation Healthy Living Initiative at Dance Exchange, these trainings have been created to meet a growing demand for the skilled integration of artistic methods into the senior living, medical and health/wellness fields.

Presented by Dance Exchange artists Shula Strassfeld and Elizabeth Johnson this workshop will prepare participants to use simple yet effective artistic tools to enhance their professional work, whether they are practicing professional artists or healthcare professionals new to the arts. Participants looking to expand their skill set in creative aging and patient care will experience a movement-based artistic practice that assists in achieving artistic, community building and clinical goals. Experiential activities, model teaching, and critical thinking help participants explore the ways in which dance and art-making can re-energize their relationship to elders and expand the effects of their work.
