Dancing with Parkinson's
COVID-19 UPDATE: This class is currently on hiatus until participants can meet safely in person again.
Instructor: Julia Marx, MA, R-DMT
Dancing with Parkinson's engages the body, mind, and spirit in dance and movement designed to address the challenges of living with PD. With no prior dance experience required, participants learn to move to music in ways which are fun and easy to pick up. Dances provide practice with balance, flexibility, mobility, coordination, creative thought, and relaxation. All activities can be done standing or seated. Individuals with Parkinson’s and their partners and caregivers are welcome!
