DANCE FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE
This dance class is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barre or standing, participants will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing. The class uses choreographic repertory in a stimulating, non-pressured and social environment, with live music to energize, enrich and empower.
