By KATE COLEMAN - Mar 6, 2016

Taking care of your health is not just a physical endeavor.


Emotional and social wellness are imperative for a healthy life.


Now a unique opportunity in Buffalo combines line dancing, mindfulness, and nutrition as a creative way for people to take care of themselves.

The Hustle for Health group fitness program was founded in 2012 and offers free aerobic line dancing classes to clients in the Buffalo area ranging from eight to 80-years-old.


Classes are set to original, instructional dance music created by Sam “DJ Maestro” Anderson, who grew up in the Detroit techno scene and wanted to reach a new audience.

Health Fair reaches out to minority communities


Gloria J. Parks Senior Director Phyllis Caver had her Hustle for Health line dance class moving to the beat.

“I’m sure you’ve heard, ‘if you don’t use it, you lose it,’” Caver said. “And Alzheimer’s and Dementia is very serious in our senior community, and it’s important to keep the mind moving.


The fitness class helps with balance as well as memory, and fall prevention.”


To help with memory, Caver said her class is predicated on repetitive music and movements.
