Abstract: Dual-tasking (e.g., enrichment of physical activities with mental exercises) is an innovative strategy to enhance older adults’ cognition. Meanwhile, Zumba is a popular dance program, but research is limited about its utility on older people or those with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). This study assessed the feasibility of a new intervention called dual-task Zumba Gold (DTZ) for people with MCI. A mixed-methods feasibility study involving ten people aged ≥55 years with MCI was conducted from December 2020 to March 2021. Nine participants completed the study (90%) with high intervention acceptability. Program adherence (90.3%) and implementation fidelity (92.2%) were high. Participants also expressed the program's benefits, challenges, and facilitators. Moreover, pilot test results suggested improvements in global cognition (Z=-2.680; p=0.007), quality of life (Z=-2.688; p=0.008), and mobility (Z=-2.333; p=0.020). Hence, DTZ is feasible and acceptable for people with MCI, offering potential multidomain effects. Future randomized controlled studies should confirm these outcomes.
