DANCEWITHNANCY.COM PROVIDES EXERCISE, FUN AND ENTERTAINMENT AT HOME FOR ACTIVE SENIORS ALONE OR WITH A PARTNER DURING AND AFTER COVID 19 
www.DanceWithNancy.com is a unique website that offers online instruction and entertainment for active seniors. The series includes dance styles of the eras of their youth and music they will remember fondly. The dance steps can be learned and practiced in a senior’s own apartment or room where they can feel safe and secure while still exercising social distancing. If they are in a partner situation with a spouse or significant other living with them, it’s a fantastic mutual activity. If they are alone, it will still provide instruction on a one to one basis.

No special fitness level or previous dance training is required. All that is needed is a willing attitude and a little bit of space to move in four directions. www.DanceWitihNancy.com provides tutorials for standard ballroom dances, country dances, themed dances, latin dances and wedding dances plus unique entertainment features. Seniors can dance to orchestra music from The Great American Songbook, Lindy Hop and Jitterbug with the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies and other fun swing bands or visit the famous WildHorse Saloon in Nashville and learn to dance the Cotton Eyed Joe or Achy Breaky Heart to music by Charlie Daniels Band. They can link to a movie that will transport them back to the Savoy Ballroom where they can link to film footage highlighting some of the greatest moments in American jazz dance history. They can reminisce about dance fashions and dance moves of the 1950s-1970 eras and more. Over two decades ago, Nancy’s series received critical acclaim in mainstream media and on national television. It became the subject of a TV pilot, an informercial on Fit TV. Nancy appeared on several national TV talk shows as a guest, including one featuring Mario Lopez, David Cassidy and other celebrities. In 2020, Nancy’s series has been updated and re-launched for a digital platform, accessible by any computer, anywhere, anytime. It is the perfect series for the current generation of baby boomers and active seniors. Practice and entertainment sessions on the site are free and the instruction prices range from free to .99 to $2.99 per downloadable segment. A comparable lesson in a private studio would range from $60-$150 and would not provide the opportunity for review and repeated playback that benefits the senior learner. The format is simple and straightforward and easy to follow. www.DanceWithNancy.com also sells physical DVDs and CDs for those who prefer to have a hard copy of the instruction to keep in their personal library.
