Dance for Parkinson’s offers specialized dance classes to people with Parkinson’s, their families, friends, and care partners. The dance class allows people with Parkinson’s to experience the joys and benefits of dance while creatively addressing symptom-specific concerns related to balance, cognition, motor skills, depression, and physical confidence. The program’s fundamental working principle is that dancers are movement experts whose knowledge about balance and rhythm is useful to individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. Class integrates movement from modern, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing to engage participants’ minds and bodies, and create an enjoyable, social environment for artistic exploration.
