What to Expect at a Dancing Through Parkinson’s class:

While every class is different, we often begin our warm-up sitting in chairs. We progress to moving across the floor together and finish in a big circle. Our class emphasizes community, inspiration and renewed joy through movement.

We teach a variety of dance forms to encourage stability and balance, increase flexibility, keep your mind limber and leave you feeling inspired.

Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to join in.  The class is designed for everyone to dance together. You will be able to move at your own pace and according to your abilities.

Classes are appropriate and enjoyable for people who are able to walk with or without assistance, as well as those with walkers or wheelchairs.  Even for standing portions of the class, there is always an equally fun seated option.

Classes are taught by a team of dance teachers trained by the original founders of the Dance for PD® program.

 

These classes are by donation, so they are accessible to everyone.  They are made possible by support from our wonderful donors, as well as:

 

This organization is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.

This organization is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles City Department of Cultural Affairs.
