“When I’m in dance class, I don’t feel like I have Parkinson’s.” Professionally trained teachers guide participants through enjoyable dance classes accompanied by live music, incorporating a variety of styles that promote body awareness in a supportive atmosphere. This program for people with Parkinson’s encourages self-expression, enhances plasticity of the brain that helps with memory, and provides opportunity for improving range of motion, balance, strength and coordination. It promotes enjoyment and social interaction that fosters creativity and boosts confidence. Participants are encouraged to think and problem-solve like dancers, not as patients. A welcoming community is created through dance and music.
