Perform choreographed movements to music from all genres! Not quite ready to just get up and dance? You can do these movements from the safety of your chair. This class isn’t your typical “tune out & follow” style of class. It’s part of the Dayton 4 Life program and focuses holistically on increasing flexibility, coordination, brain function, spinal health, cognitive ability/memory, and overall health and well-being while having FUN! This class is geared towards the 55+ crowd, but all are welcome. Social distancing protocols will be followed and masks are required.

Evidence Based Wellness Programming with Juniper

The City of Dayton has partnered with Juniper, a research-based series of wellness programs offered throughout the state of Minnesota.  Classes will soon be offered both virtually and in person at the Dayton Activity Center.  While we are organizing our local program, there are many virtual opportunities that are FREE and available at their website listed below. 

Creating a Healthier Minnesota

Juniper is helping communities across Minnesota create a culture of health, where prevention and wellness are the norm. Our programs give you the tools you need to take control of your own health and manage in a way that works best for you and your life. Juniper programs provide education, fitness instruction, and self-care strategies for participants; they do not replace clinical care provided by doctors, nurses and other medical professionals. Our evidence-based programs help people across the state experience improved wellness and quality of life.

What are “evidence-based” programs?

Evidence-based programs are developed and verified by researchers to promote self-management of chronic health conditions (such as diabetes and chronic pain), prevent falls, and foster individual well-being. Juniper offers evidence-based programs for:

Preventing Falls

Preventing and Managing Diabetes

Managing Chronic Conditions and Pain

Science Club

Do you have a future Mad Scientist in your house?  Is your child always asking “why” and wanting to know more about how the world works?  Then join in the Dayton Activity Center’s first Science Club!  Each month there will be a new themed science activity sent to your home or made available for pickup at City Hall. Every membership starts with their very own Scientific Journal and each kit is complete with instructions & most supplies. Complete projects and earn stickers for your Scientific Journal! This club is ideal for grades K-8 but would be enjoyable for Pre-K with additional adult assistance and for high schoolers who aren’t too cool for some simple science fun.
