About Dance for PD® – The award-winning Dance for PD® program, celebrating its 15th anniversary, invites people with Parkinson’s and their families in more than 120 communities and 16 countries to experience the joys and benefits of dance while creatively addressing symptom-specific concerns related to balance, cognition, motor skill, depression and physical confidence. This popular class, originally developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group, is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barre or moving across the floor, you will explore various styles of movement in a safe, non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers. Please visit www.danceforpd.org for more information.

“The music and movement started, I was filled with great joy. I was able to take the whole class and walked out feeling accomplished. I saw the endless possibilities for those with Parkinson’s and for myself.”—Dance for PD® students

This workshop is offered in conjunction to Dance Heginbotham’s residency at the UAlbany Performing Arts Center from April 17-20, 2017.
