We are thrilled to announce this innovative weekly class for people living with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. Inspired by the internationally-acclaimed program Dance for PD®, founded in 2001 by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s Group, this class will explore movement through different types of rhythmic music in ways that are joyful, safe, and stimulating. Dance Through Parkinson’s has been proven to enhance strength, balance, flexibility, awareness, and confidence in its participants.Dance Through Parkinson’s will be taught by Rachelle Smith-Stallman, a Board-Certified Dance Movement Therapist and New York State Licensed Creative Arts Therapist.
Classes are free of charge and no experience is necessary for participation. For more information please contact the Museum at 518-584-2225 ext. 3001.
