Students Promote Healthy Lifestyle by Dancing with Seniors
Sparked by her own grandmother’s battle with cancer, Sarah Ludington started Dance2Heal, a nonprofit promoting wellness through dance. Teen dancers like herself volunteer their time at hospitals, retirement communities, rehabilitation programs, and physician offices.
Sarah’s mother, Encinitas-based cardiologist Dr. Katherine Ludington, hopes the dance events encourage her patients to consider dance as an enjoyable way to stay active.

“Sometimes she watched my dance videos and sometimes we’d just be baking cookies in the kitchen together and we’d start dancing. It could turn a bad day into a good day and it brought a lot of happiness. I found it really inspiring,” said Sarah, 16, who is on the varsity dance team at Torrey Pines High School.
After her grandmother recovered last spring, Sarah wanted to find a way to use her passion for dance to brighten the hearts of other seniors around North County. So a few months ago, the Carmel Valley teen started Dance2Heal, a nonprofit where teen dancers like herself can perform not only for seniors, children and people with disabilities, but with them.
