This is the sixth year UPMC Susquehanna will participate in this nationwide event to create healthier communities. Day of Dance expects to attract over 300 women. 

“Incorporating dance into your exercise routine is not only fun, it can be beneficial to everyone. We’re excited to have women in our community enjoy in dance, aerobics, and many other health and wellness activities at Day of Dance. UPMC Susquehanna is thrilled and proud to participate in this nationwide, fun, overall health initiative,” said Tonya Welshans, Spirit of Women Coordinator at UPMC Susquehanna.

Members receive free or discounted health screenings and classes, invitations to member’s only events, ongoing health and wellness information and a loyalty card to give access to special offers from area businesses.

Spirit of Women’s goal is to motivate and inspire women to make positive changes to lead their best, healthiest life. The program wants to empower women to guide their own wellness journey while recognizing that women are often pulled in many directions and often to do not take time to care for themselves.
