Abstract
Older adults tend to passivity, boredom, loneliness and isolation. To combat these threats is necessary that day centers, universities, residences or associations do activities that could cope with (Petrus, 1997). In this sense, raise a playful way activity that increases both brain activity as the motor means improving the quality of life. In fact, is considered immature to adult playing, but playing involves sanity, mental balance, have not personality disorders as a depression or other pathologies that involve the non-enjoyment of the game. Leisure activity should be included in the work of the classroom, in the early stages and in the later stages. (Bernabeu and Goldstein, 2009). In this sense, according Dalcroze the musical rhythm could order the inner rhythm. Our objectives are aimed at improving the quality of life of older adults significantly boost memory. Improve movement and motor skills, knowing the benefits of the work of laterality. To promote and increase social and interpersonal relationships, assess the importance of staying active at a stage of life in which leisure time increases and passivity, enrich knowledge in general, encourage learning throughout life, continuing education in the arts for adults and elders and provide training programs that are in connection with the principle of quality of life. To Practice group activity as a form of social and personal fulfillment. We use an active methodology following parameters of Dalcroze Pedagogy, combining with daily monitoring of students to see the progress and improvements in learning or recoil, if it occurs, and thus able to adapt activities to each individual case and the group of students in general. Students are satisfied with their work and learning process, although some are uncomfortable with body expression activities in front of peers (a very small percentage). Moreover, it was necessary to adapt the activities proposed to students' work rate. Also, it is necessary to have skilled personnel (doctor / psychologist) to deepen some specific aspects.
