Feedback from Dance for PD students:

"After class, I find myself feeling lighter, more present, aware, inspired, hopeful, empowered."

"During class I feel something like elation.  But mostly the good feeling I have before and during class--and it is a good feeling--is the absence of the feeling of discomfort that accompanies the physical symptoms of PD."

"It makes me feel alive and forget my limitations because of PD.  It is easy to follow the instructions.  I have fun, love the live music, and the dance teachers are fantastic!"

About the class

In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative.  A unique collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, the program is built 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--including six in the DC Metro area--and in 15 countries around the world.  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.
