Rimbala™ is an evidence-based falls prevention program that uses music and movement as the means to improve the physical, cognitive and artistic lives of participants.

Rimbala™ was developed by Dr. Daniel Rubinoff, an award-winning performer, composer and conductor. The method is informed by Dr. Rubinoff's extensive background in Dalcroze Eurhythmics and by his interests in Taoist Tai Chi, Alexander Technique, Laban Movement Analysis and Bartenieff Fundamentals.

Rimbala™ combines live, improvised music with simple movement activities to help participants improve gait regularity, balance and mobility. The improvised music in Rimbala™ is dynamic and invites participants to develop brain plasticity in a joyful and socially interactive environment. Each class is unique. Participants help to shape the music and the movements with the Rimbala™ instructor. Research shows that live improvised music paired with rhythmic movements reduces falls among participants by an amazing 54%.
