In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating, social and creative. The internationally-acclaimed Dance for PD® program, developed collaboratively by Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group, is built on one fundamental premise: professionally-trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge, strategies and expressive approach to moving are useful to persons with Parkinson’s. This multiple award-winning program, launched in 2001, is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. Classes modeled after Dance for PD are available in more than 250 communities in 25 countries. Evidence from 38 peer-reviewed scientific studies serves to underpin the effectiveness and benefits of the Dance for PD teaching practice. More at www.danceforpd.org.
"The music and movement started, I was filled with great joy. I walked out feeling accomplished. I saw the endless possibilities for those with Parkinson’s and for myself." —Dance for PD® student
