Dancing with Parkinson's #Meanwood on Thursday 14th June 2018
This is a unique programme for people to take part in our friendly and energised Dancing with Parkinson's classes.
Dancing with Parkinson's #Saltaire | This is a unique programme for people to take part in our friendly and energised Dancing with Parkinson's classes. Each class is 1 hour and is designed to help people with Parkinson's and other conditions which restrict mobility. Accompanied by fun and enjoyable music, the classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of neurodegenerative disease. Classes start seated with a stretching and strengthening warm-up, followed by balance work with the aid of chairs, ending with short sequences and social dances. Exercises are adapted of those who prefer to remain seated or aided by one of our dance teachers. Participants may be learning the tango and salsa one week, the hand jive the next and even be guided around the room for a ceilidh dance. Younger and older members are welcome to join in the fun, including carers and friends with or without dance experience! Tea and cake and a chance to socialise will follow the session. £5 per session
