The physical, social and cognitive benefits of dancing will be in the disco spotlight Saturday as Grey Matters Dance for Parkinson's Utah holds its second annual year-end performance, this year with a '70s theme.

Grey Matters: Dance for Parkinson's Utah started as a community service and research collaboration between the departments of modern dance and physical therapy under former University of Utah dance professor Juan Carlos Claudio and physical therapy doctoral student Lennie Swenson. It has expanded to three locations in Salt Lake City.

"That 70's Show" includes an hour of dance and poetry highlighting the benefits of dance and creativity for those living with Parkinson's disease. The performance will be followed by refreshments and a silent auction, with proceeds benefiting the program.

When • Saturday, 2 p.m.

Where • 10th East Senior Center, 237 S. 1000 East, Salt Lake City

Tickets • $10 suggested donation (cash or check only); free parking behind the senior center
