About the class

In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. What began as a collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group has developed into a global program based on one fundamental premise: professionally trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD.

Dancers know all about stretching and strengthening muscles, and about balance and rhythm. Most importantly, dancers know how to use their thoughts, imagination, eyes, ears and touch to control their movements. This popular class, which has been offered at the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn since 2001 and is now offered in more than 100 communities in 17 countries around the world, 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.
