Join Us for a Dance Series Designed for those with Parkinson's

San Francisco Ballet, in partnership with Kaiser Permanente, offers a 9-week dance class series especially designed for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease.

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 joyful dance classes integrate ballet, modern and folk dance and are designed to honor PD-specific concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, isolation, and depression. Caregivers and attendants are also welcome.

Classes are taught by Cecelia Beam, Master of Science in Ballet. All classes taught to live piano accompaniment and are offered free-of-charge. We just ask that you commit to all 6 classes. Space is limited. Registration is required by January 8.

For more information or to register, contact Cecelia Beam at 415-865-6583 or cbeam@sfballet.org. No previous dance experience is required. Wear loose and comfortable clothing.
