What a fabulous program! I hope it's extended to seniors overall someday.
Kudos to the French for coming up with a unique experiment that will hopefully provide good data for the present and future people who have fewer choices in life, but instinctually by using music and movement might find enjoyments.

It looks to me like everyone's having a fun time and sounds like it's a well-thought out program. Just loved reading of this. And what outstanding volunteers who helped this to happen.

May the originators succeed far beyond their hopes.
