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.
Lisa Lanzi, an experienced Dance teacher trained in the Dance for Parkinson’s program will be conducting the weekly Dance with Me program.

Bronze name tablets for St Peters Heroes Memorial
The St Peters Residents’ Association (SPRA) are on a mission to acknowledge the names of those who did not return from the Great War.
This will be achieved by the fixing of bronze tablets containing the names of the fallen Great War servicemen from the then Town of St Peters onto the St Peters Heroes Memorial in St Peters Street.
The names of about 146 men from the suburbs of Hackney, College Park, East Adelaide, St Peters, Stepney, Evandale and Maylands have been identified. The SPRA would like to contact any relatives of these men, so that they can be involved in the re-dedication of the Memorial and to check the family details.
It is intended that the St Peters Heroes Memorial, with the name tablets, will be re-dedicated around the Centenary Remembrance Day in November 2018.
