Event description

Description

Dance Wise for Parkinson’s classes inspire joy, hope and a confident body through dance. The program brings people with Parkinson’s, their care partners, spouses, family and friends together for an hour of dance which is not only a dynamic and enjoyable way to exercise, it is a powerful form of self-expression. Artistic Director and primary teaching artist Elena Diehl introduces movement from modern and theater dance, ballet, folk dance, tap, improvisation, and choreographic repertory in a safe, enjoyable and creative environment.

The emphasis in every Dance Wise for Parkinson’s class is to engage the participants' minds and bodies through novel creative dance explorations and to dance for the sake of gracefulness and enjoyment. Participants’ artistic expression is nurtured through an enjoyable, empowering approach and students learn to enhance their aesthetic awareness and grace while addressing PD-specific concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, gait, social isolation, and depression.

Classes at the Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church location are always free for participants thanks to generous support by the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana!

FAQs

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Email or call Elena at:

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No printed ticket is necessary. Just bring yourself wearing comfortable clothes to move and groove in as well as shoes that won't fall off as we kick up our heels! The floors are linoleum and most people prefer to wear light sneakers like Keds or Skechers walking shoes.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

Yes! Just let us know when you'd prefer to attend and we'll be there ready to groove!
