COMING TO the Richard M. Nixon Library, Yorba Linda, CA March 1, 2015

Richard M. Nixon Library, March 1, 2015

YORBA LINDA, CA – More than 200 of the most interesting people in Orange County, CA will be attending USA Dance Orange County’s Presidents’ Ball Fund Raiser for Alzheimer’s Research and will be held at the Richard M. Nixon’s Library in Yorba Linda, CA March 1, 2015. The Presidents’ Ball is organized by USA Dance Orange County, CA Chapter.

We established a non-profit organization called The Beverly McCombs Foundation – Dance for Cognitive Enhancement – essentially, seeking to fund a research study that will establish the beneficial role of social ballroom dancing in maintaining cognitive, motor and emotional health in aging. DanCE was initially inspired by the 21-year “Leisure study and the Risk of Dementia,” published in the New England Journal of Medicine by our now collaborator Professor Joe Verghese of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Verghese’s study established that out 11 physical activities that were evaluated, the only one that protected against memory loss was dancing.

Prevention programs like the Finger research in Finland that studied the effects of lifestyle changes on memory impairment, conclude that disease-related changes in the brain actually begin decades before memory problems become obvious. It is our belief that social ballroom dancing in union with a healthy diet is the best antidote for memory loss.

It is our mission that DanCE play a significant role to establish Alzheimer’s prevention programs to help people avoid the crippling effects of this disease; and in the meantime, bringing awareness of the therapeutic benefits of dancing for everyone.

There will be plenty of dancing, dinner, auctions and drawings. In addition, there will be a Dance Dual between competing couples and the best social dancer will be awarded….all to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research.
