You’re invited to explore—and perhaps reconnect with—the joy of dancing and music by taking part in a class based on the Dance for PD® model developed by the renowned Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s Group. 

The one-hour demonstration combines live keyboard accompaniment and easy-to-do movement drawn from a wide range of dance styles, all of which are adaptable to varying levels of physical ability, including participants who use walkers. Music also plays a key role in the class.

 

Please note: No dance or singing experience is needed, and all are welcome to participate and enjoy
