Dance with Me program for people with Parkinson’s, MS, Stroke, Arthritis or other mobility issues
We are excited to announce that a Dance program for people with Parkinson’s, MS, Stroke, Arthritis or other mobility issues is coming to the Norwood area. While the program is not exclusively for people with Parkinson’s it has been modelled on the Dance for Parkinson’s program.
This innovative, internationally acclaimed dance program was developed by the Mark Morris Dance Company in New York in conjunction with the Brooklyn Parkinson’s group and accommodates people with a range of mobility, through seated and standing choreography.
Feedback from current programs around the state has been overwhelmingly positive with people reporting improvements in posture, coordination balance and mood.
Comments included: ’...enjoyable journey into the unknown.’ ‘Í wouldn’t miss it even if not feeling great. I feel I’m doing something positive for myself.’ ‘Uplifting…such fun with some challenge.’ ‘…frees me up – mentally and physically for the rest of the week.’ ’For an hour I forget I have Parkinson’s.’ ‘Time disappeared, inhibitions washed away, stiffness and slowness were...somewhere else.’
Family members are welcome to attend and have also expressed their delight in the experience.
