Rhythm Break Cares
As we grow, we believe that it is important to give back to the community and support local charitable organizations. Rhythm Break Cares is a nonprofit that is closely connected to Furnish Green as our sister organization. Nathan Hescock, the founder of Furnish Green, and Hooba, our workroom manager, are part of the RBC team, serving as president and dance instructor. Because of these close familial ties, FG has given a lot of support to RBC and their mission over the years.
While Furnish Green enhances an individualâ€™s quality of life through a lovingly furnished home, RBC enhances the quality of life of individuals with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers through dance. RBC uses a unique and effective dance therapy approach to address the widespread and immediate needs of local individuals with Alzheimerâ€™s and associated dementias, as well as their caregivers. Capitalizing on the demonstrated benefits of music, movement and touch, the organization aims to improve the quality of life of each person involved. They hold a variety of sessions, offering social functions at their midtown dance studio, on-site events at dementia centers, private lessons and instruction for caregivers.
If you would like to join us in supporting Rhythm Break Cares and help to fund their important and life-changing activities, now is your chance. They are holding an online fundraiser with YouCaring.com from August 14th through October 15th. The fundraiser is called â€śMaking Moments Through Music and Movementâ€ť and their goal is to raise $3,650.00. This amount will to enable them to cover the costs of travel, space rentals, specialized equipment, teacher training and instructor fees for several months. Click here to get involved!
â€śWhen you dance with someone, you get to interact with them and establish communication… People who donâ€™t really communicate in any other way often open up once the music starts and we get moving.â€ť
