Learn More About DTP

DANCING THROUGH PARKINSON’S, created in 2011, is an ongoing community program of Invertigo Dance Theatre. Classes are designed for people with Parkinson's Disease but are open to everyone and equally beneficial for combatting aging or other neurological challenges. Family and caregivers are encouraged to attend. All classes are taught by professional dancers trained in methods specific for PD and offer a fun, supportive environment, fostering physical stability, mental clarity, grace, and creativity.

Participants are able to move at their own pace and for standing portions of the class, there is always an equally engaging seated option. No Dance experience is required.

Dancing Through Parkinson's classes meet weekly in Venice, Culver City, Beverly Hills, and Tarzana.

HEAR ABOUT US ON NPR:

Dr. James Young:

"Dance has a different effect on patients and in these individuals, it's extraordinary because it's sort of a backdoor into therapy.  It allows them to have a certain fluidity in their movements.  They're improving in balance, they're improving in their activities of daily living, they're improving socially and also in their attitude toward their life."
James Young, MD, Rehabilitation Physician, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago, IL
