The City of Albuquerque’s Department of Senior Affairs partnered with Frances Lujan to offer dance classes to seniors at various senior/multigenerational centers. Participants will have a chance to showcase what they learned to our community during the Tarde de Oro performance. These classes have been beneficial to seniors in a variety of ways. “Some seniors have been able to learn a new dance while others have enjoyed the music and dances they once enjoyed as children,” said Jorja Armijo-Brasher, the Director of the City of Albuquerque Department of Senior Affairs. “The classes not only provided an excellent socialization opportunity for the seniors, it also provided them with a fitness opportunity.”
