Modeled after the Dance for PD® classes developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group and designed specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease and their spouses, family members, friends, and caregivers. These classes will integrate ballet, modern, folk, and improvisation to engage in an experience that will develop individual artistic expression while honoring PD-specific concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, isolation, and depression.

New participant: prior to the first class (March 16 and March 20) plan on attending a required one-hour orientation session at noon.
