Hundreds of St. Louis Women Dance Their Way to Better Health at the St. Luke's Hospital Day of Dance

Dance demonstrations and health screenings provide easy "steps" to take action for better health.

CHESTERFIELD, MO, February 26, 2010 - When hundreds of St. Louis women gather for the second annual St. Luke's Hospital Day of Dance, they will learn moves from many types of dance including Zumba, belly dance, line dance, cardio hip hop and even a synchronized "mob dance." More importantly, they will be taking steps toward a heart-healthy lifestyle.

St. Luke's Day of Dance is Saturday, February 27 at the Hilton St. Louis Frontenac (1335 South Lindbergh Blvd.) from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Registration and screenings begin at 8:30 a.m.)

It is a free, interactive event aimed at inspiring women to take action for their health and the health of their families. Participants learn fun, easy dance steps from instructors coordinated by Dance St. Louis to dance their way toward better health. In addition,
St. Luke's physicians and health educators provide information on heart disease and other topics for women and their families. They also provide free health screenings, such as bone density, body mass index, pulmonary function and blood pressure screenings.

"We offer St. Luke's Day of Dance to the community to inspire a lifetime of exercise and other healthy habits," said Jan Hess, St. Luke's Hospital vice president. "Women make most of the healthcare decisions, so we know if women make healthy lifestyle choices, the rest of the family will follow."
