We have been using the same sit dance program for our morning exercise for years and it is very repetitive. Does anyone have any suggestions for something new except not zumba?

I call my sessions 'Chair Dancing Fun'.....I use a fun zappy short song, and make up a movement routine using either: organza scarves/fans/rolled up/cellotaped womans weeklys/long pieces of thick ribbon. Residents seem to enjoy the chance to use 'props' - it makes it so much more fun and can be quite entertaining once you invite some Staff to come on in & join in to learn the movements!!! You'll all have a ball - believe me!! The idea is to have fun, be silly,...and laugh!!

There are several chair exercise programs on Youtube. Take a look at a few and decide which are right speed and type for your group. We play them on a big TV paired with an ipad if you have Apple TV or Roku or on a smart TV
