You mentioned music performances.

Music is great for dementia because it is generally connected to the way-back things they remember.

Sing-alongs are great and cheap. Large-print word books and recordings (or a live leader if you can find a volunteer). Find out what the pop music of the day was.

I recorded a bunch of hymns and would take them to my mom. We'd just sit and sing hymns on the glider in the courtyard.

I second children's dance groups!
