Dance or exercise program for people with stroke

April 23 @ 8:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pm

Do YOU Like To Dance?

We are looking for volunteers to take part in a study on a dance or exercise program for people with stroke

We need people who:

  • Had a stroke more than 6-months ago
  • Can walk 10 meters without assistive devices
  • Have received clearance from their physician to participate in exercise
  • Have not participated in a structured dance program in the past 12 months

You would:

  • Be randomly assigned to either the dance group or the control group
  • Perform balance tasks and provide feedback on your groups’ program

Time commitment:

  • 1-hour session 2-times a week for 12-weeks at the University of Toronto and Toronto Rehab
  • Also, we will ask you to visit Toronto Rehab one time before and one time after the program to assess any improvements (approx. 3 hours each for assessment)

Participants will receive financial compensation to help cover the cost of travel (e.g TTC tokens, taxi or parking)

For more information about this study, or to volunteer for this study, please contact the study coordinator:
