This research focuses on social dancing and its relationship to well-being in the later stage of life. While dancing as a form of physical exercise for seniors has been studied, social dancing has not been as thoroughly investigated. This popular cultural and social activity can contribute to the life of older adults in a variety of ways. The purpose of this study is to identify the ways in which social dancing contributes to the well-being of seniors. To this end we observed, surveyed, and formed a focus group from two dance locations in Olomouc, Czech Republic. As a result of participant observation, questionnaires, and a focus group there were three main findings. 1). Social dance can be a health enhancing physical activity. 2). As opposed to a dance class, social dance promotes a playful and spontaneous atmosphere. 3). This weekly scheduled event of dancing adds a positive reconnection and continuation with one’s memory, youth, and history. Communities should be encouraged to establish social dance as an option for all ages, especially older adults.
