Waltz to reduce falls

In the past, older people were encouraged to get regular exercise in order to reduce the potential for falls.  Now, new research suggests that a mix of movements using different parts of the body may be more effective prevention than just cycling or walking.  That is because activities such as waltzing demand a good sense of balance, something that is adversely affected by a number of different changes in aging bodies.  More about this research is available from The Daily Telegraph.
