The mission of Rhythm Break Cares is to provide the restorative power of music, movement and touch to people living with dementia and their loved ones.

At RBC, the primary goal is to increase the quality of life for individuals living with Dementia and their care partners.  Recent estimates suggest that 5.4 million people in America currently have Alzheimer’s Disease and that one in eight older Americans will eventually develop AD. While research has shown that cognitive tasks and physical activity appear to delay the onset and severity of dementia and Alzheimer’s, more recent work has shown that partner dancing not only promotes these healthy activities, but also incorporates the benefits of movement, music, touch, and social engagement.

RB cares provides a unique opportunity for individuals with Alzheimer’s and dementia to participate in partner dance by hosting dance sessions throughout the New York City region.  The instructors are professional dancers who have undergone substantial training to understand how the Alzheimer’s community best responds to and benefits from partner dancing.  Their events include on-site sessions at dementia and memory centers, private lessons, tea socials, and instructions for caregivers and caregiver group classes.

Rhythm Break Cares is a 501(c)(3) public charity. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
