Why Dance for Parkinson’s? The classes empower people with Parkinson’s disease to explore movement in ways that are stimulating and creative by focusing on key principles related to dance from instilling confidence to breaking isolation, stimulating mental activity, to increasing spatial awareness. Participants are welcome to try out the first class without committing to being registered. Once registered, the fee is $80 for the 8-week session. Registration will be complete when a referral-clearance from the patient’s physician is received.
