Maybe there's something here that could apply to dancers:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Smooth moves</B><P>Adapted tai chi program offers option to arthritis sufferers<P>Vera H-C Chan, Contra Costa Times<P>Arthritis might keep you from doing deep knee bends or lobbing a ball, but you can still push a mountain.<P>Pushing mountain, waving hands in a cloud and playing lutes are all movements of a style called Twelve-Movement Tai Chi for Arthritis. At the Pleasant Hill Adult Education Center, about 30 people have showed up on this rainy Friday for a 9:30 a.m. class. Before they begin, they pull the yellow chairs in a circle, sit and talk about administrative details and their progress.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><A HREF="http://www.contracostatimes.com/timeout/stories_feattop/x13taichi_20010213.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>More</B></A>

Since childhood I had some arthritis problems in my wrists - until I started dancing - and then it went away. Haven't had an attack in many years. I am sure the movement is very effective, - it was for me at least.
