At the wave, we dance to make a difference. We dance to end loneliness worldwide.

Research has shown Isolation increases inflammation in the body and is worse for our health than smoking, alcohol, and obesity! 60% of residents living in nursing homes never have visitors. 1 in 3 Americans over 65 & 1 in 2 Americans over 85 are socially isolated!
ALMA has three overarching goals:
To enhance the quality of life of under-served seniors living in long term care facilities by providing direct arts, movement, and music based based programming.
To decrease ageism and create a culture change in attitudes towards the aging through volunteer engagement and conducting research on the benefits of inter-generational connection.
To support at risk youth through creative engagement with elders, in a fun community service learning setting.
Help us spread awareness for this cause!
The more people dance, the more impact we can make on isolation and quality of elders lives
