The Mark Morris Dance Group’s internationally-acclaimed, research-backed Dance for PD® program invites people with Parkinson’s and their families to transform their lives through dance. The program is built on one fundamental premise: professionally-trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge, strategies, and expressive approach to moving are useful to persons with Parkinson’s. In Dance for PD® classes, people living with Parkinson’s at all levels of ability and mobility explore movement and music with MMDG teaching artists in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating, social, and creative. Partners, spouses, and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend. For more information and to register, please call 800-957-1046 ext. 5 or click on register below.
