Exciting music and clear examples invite you to explore new movements and concepts, to move with the music, and to feel comfort and ease in your movement. The music is carefully chosen to help us embody each type of movement. The movements are selected and modified specifically for people with Parkinson’s, and will be adapted according to each individual’s ability. Many people with other types of movement challenges report they have benefitted from these classes. Classes includes diverse dance and movement genres (jazz, tap, modern, african, ballet, yoga, chi gong, waltz, cha cha, salsa, marches and more). Movements will be rhythmic, fluid, delicious, exciting, grounding, centering, purposeful, or full of breath, and they will become uniquely your own. Thanks to the leadership and inspiration of the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s Group, dance programs for people with Parkinson’s are emerging all over the country. Be part of the excitement!
