Parkinson's Dance Class Session II
This global program features professional dancers from Southern Danceworks, teaching with an emphasis on physical and artistic movement potential. Dance for Parkinson’s is modeled after an evidence-based program developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s group. We start with a seated warm-up and transition to standing and moving across the floor. Care partners are welcome and all participants are encouraged to wear tennis shoes or socks.
“Dancing for Parkinson’s turned a bad day into a good day. Recently, my wife who has Parkinson’s began her day with a fall in the kitchen. Fortunately, later that morning was her dance class. With the camaraderie of her fellow Parkinson’s dancers and the enthusiasm of Teri and Mary Margaret, the malaise of the morning lifted and her movements improved. Thank you Dancing for Parkinson’s!!”
