NWPF

Dance for PD

Classes are based on the Dance for Parkinson's program developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group. They are run by certified instructors and feature live music.

Each class uses dance, live music and community to develop artistry and grace while addressing such PD-specific concerns as balance, flexibility, coordination, gait and isolation.  Whether seated or standing, people with Parkinson's, caregivers and friends will enjoy this creative and welcoming environment.  No dance experience necessary.
