BB4B is a group balance class that uses basic dance moves to practice and enhance balance and learn to prevent falls. It’s fun as well as instructive; it includes validated pre- and post- testing to measure balance, cognitive function and quality of life. The curriculum is based on evidence and therapeutic practice…and it’s fun! BB4B is now an official program of the Madison Senior Center Foundation (MSCF), and is conducted by Yahara Therapy LLC (Susan Frikken, physical therapist); Darcie Olson PhD, OTR; and Megan Bjella, OTR.
