Drums Alive® Golden Beats is a Brain & Body program that stimulates people whether they are young or old, healthy or ill. When we drum and dance we are having FUN! This in return releases endorphins and releases negative feelings. The rhythm of the drumming and movement patterns increase brain wave activity which in turn provide feelings of euphoria and improved mental awareness and acceptance of self. Golden Beats® is a fun and engaging program specially designed for the aging adult population and is appropriate for those who are less mobile.
