About the class
In Dance for PD® classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating and creative. Born from the idea that people with Parkinson’s could benefit from the insight and specific techniques and methods used by dancers to guide their own bodies and minds, Dance for PD® strives to increase coordination, balance, flexibility, and strength through music and movement from a broad range of dance styles. In classes led by professionally-trained dancers and musicians, participants experience the grace, fluidity, and power of dance in a social, joyful, and supportive environment.
This internationally-acclaimed, multiple award-winning program, first developed collaboratively by the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group in 2001, is appropriate for anyone with PD, at all levels of ability and mobility. The JAI is fully accessible, and staff and volunteers will be on hand to ensure a comfortable visit for all.
No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barre or standing, you will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, creative improvisation, folk and social dancing, and Mark Morris company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers.
