Dance And Movement

Moving With Music

This is a dance class that has been specially designed for people with Parkinson’s. Classes start with seated exercises to warm up muscles and increase mobility, followed by choreographed movements to well-known songs, and rhythm exercises to improve coordination. Standing exercises (supported by a chair) include modified ballet moves to improve balance, and improvisation for creative expression. Finally, there is simplified dancing in a variety of styles from ballet to Bollywood.
