Day of Dance Report
For seven years, the Spirit of Women® Health Network through the Day of Dance® for Your Health initiative has sought to eliminate heart disease in women and their families throughout American communities.
In 2011, 75 hospitals hosted 78 Day of Dance events and joined over 70,000 consumers for one cause — to spread awareness and dance away cardiovascular disease. This one day signature event seeks to motivate women to take action to improve their health and the health of their families by focusing on wellness.
This grassroots initiative encourages people to act on the message that good health is just a dance away by incorporating dance demonstrations, education, exercise, health screenings, community celebration, physician interaction and fun. Day of Dance specifically educates about risk factors, chronic diseases and lifestyle choices that contribute to cardiovascular disease and other leading health conditions. This initiative is successful because it brings together:
- healthcare providers
- corporate partners
- advocacy groups
