Behavioral: exercises without dance
the intervention consists of exercises aimed at training the walking, the balance, the postural changes and the arm swing
- Timed Up and Go Test (TUG) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]To determine fall risk and measure the progress of balance, sit to stand, and walking.
- 6 Minutes Walking Test (6MWT) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]The 6MWT measures the distance an individual is able to walk over a total of six minutes on a hard, flat surface. The goal is for the individual to walk as far as possible in six minutes.
- Balance Berg Scale (BBS) [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]to objectively determine a patient's ability (or inability) to safely balance during a series of predetermined tasks.
- delayed recall of items [ Time Frame: 4 weeks ]number of specific items correctly performed in recall phase
