    #MonsterArts for Seniors Program

    Learn more about our expansion of the Monster Arts program below!

    Started in 2018, #MonsterArts for Seniors provides the elderly with stimulating, professionally-led arts workshops in English, Hindi, Punjabi, Gujarati, Tamil and more to reduce feelings of isolation. Seniors enjoy South Asian culture through workshops in Bollywood dance, Hindi and Tamil music, poetry, painting, and so on. This program fills gaps in cultural and language-specific services for seniors in the community. Seniors reconnect with their peers through free, interactive workshops led by experienced artists. The workshops are available virtually and in-person at no cost to the seniors.
    • “One of our male participants began to tear up. He was reminiscing about something or someone from his past that the song reminded him of and someone pointed out that it was a love song. He smiled as well and let us know it was the good kind of tears. Pushpinder’s performance allowed him to feel that emotion.”

    • “What I liked about the workshop is the creativity it brings out in me and that it is expanding my mind.”

    • “One client was following along to the moves in her seat and was smiling watching the others. She seemed a bit hesitant to stand up and dance, but I could tell she wanted to and encouraged her to try some moves standing. We positioned another chair in front of her so she could hold the back of it for support if she needed. She remained standing for the rest of the time. She really enjoyed that opportunity to fully participate.”

    • “Graceful, gentle exercises. Krystal spent enough time on each movement for us to pick them up. It is also nice to do exercises in a group.”
