Care New England joins Day of Dance event

Posted 2/17/14

WARWICK – Care New England welcomes families to the National Day of Dance for Your Health event on Feb. 22 at the Warwick Mall from noon to 4 p.m.

The event is a program of the Spirit of Women Hospital Network held in 70 communities and attended by more than 70,000 people across the U.S. This year celebrates the 10th annual National Day of Dance and is the largest dance event for better health in the U.S.

This is the first year Care New England will host the local event for this nationwide effort to create healthier communities. Day of Dance will feature an array of group dance classes including: line, Zumba, Irish Step, and hip-hop. Physicians from Care New England’s cardiology program will also be on hand to provide educational information. Screenings, heart-disease education and other important health topics will also be offered. 


Day of Dance educates consumers on a variety of cardiovascular conditions. Additionally, Heather Hurlburt, of Brigham and Women’s Cardiovascular Associates at Kent Hospital, and other cardiologists will help educate women about the differences in women’s heart health, including differing symptoms that commonly can be ignored.

Coronary heart disease, which causes heart attacks, is the leading cause of death for Americans. When done on a regular basis as a form of exercise, dancing can burn as many calories as swimming, walking or riding a bike. •
