Have you always wanted to learn how to dance? Are you a former dancer looking to get moving again? Good news! Dance is available to you at any age, and is good for the mind, body, and soul. While there are a variety of dance styles such as ballet, tap, contemporary, and hip-hop; swing dancing has remained popular for over 100 years! Swing is a style of dance that developed alongside the swing style of jazz in the 1920s. Back then, dancers would move to the tunes of famous jazz musicians such as Louis Armstrong, Count Basie, Roy Eldridge, Glenn Miller, and other greats.

At AARP, we envision a world where people aged 50-plus are respected and valued in the workforce. This vision also includes empowering the 50-plus community to start new businesses and work for as long as they need or desire. For many, the process of starting a small business is competitive and difficult to navigate. Prospective business owners and entrepreneurs are not offered the unique guidance and resources that they need for success. As people live longer lives and the nature of work evolves, the need to learn new skills and translate experience to new career opportunities will only grow.
