Improvement of upper body and leg strength is important and possible at any age. In the first 20-minute session Betty Switkes leads the group in a warm-up emphasizing strength building with neckties, a balancing exercise done standing or seated, and a lively seated dance. The second 20-minute session features gentle aerobics, upper body strengthening using soup cans as weights, enjoyable dance motions and a pleasant cool-down. The routines are accompanied by lively big band and popular music.
