About the class

In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. The class is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barre or standing, you will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, folk and social dancing, and company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers. 

About the program

Recognized for distinguished achievement by the World Parkinson Congress, Syracuse University, and the New York City Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities, Dance for PD stems from the idea that people with Parkinson’s benefit from the specific techniques and methods dancers use to train and guide their own bodies and minds. The program, which started with a single class in Brooklyn in 2001, aims to increase coordination, balance, fluidity, and a sense of community through music and movement from a broad range of dance styles. In classes led by professionally-trained dancers and musicians, participants are inspired to experience the grace, empowerment, and joy of dance with live music in a social, fun, and safe environment. Dance for PD serves as a model for classes offered in more than 250 communities in 25 countries around the world. The is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced.
