About the class

In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. Born from the idea that people with Parkinson’s could benefit from the insight and specific techniques and methods used by dancers to guide their own bodies and minds, Dance for PD® strives to increase coordination, balance, flexibility, and strength through music and movement from a broad range of dance styles. In classes led by professionally-trained dancers and musicians, participants experience the grace, fluidity, and power of dance in a social, joyful, and supportive environment.

This internationally-acclaimed, multiple award-winning program, first developed collaboratively by the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group in 2001, is appropriate for anyone with PD, at any level of ability or mobility.

No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barre or standing, you will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, creative improvisation, social dancing and Mark Morris company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers.



The Dance for PD Community class is part of the ASaP 2019 Symposium: The Power of Partnerships on College Hill and Beyond on March 16. For more information, visit www.asap-brown.org. All events are free and open to the public.
