About

In Dance for PD(r) classes, participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, stimulating, and creative. A 10-year collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, the program is built on one fundamental premise: professionally trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge is useful to persons with PD. Dancers know all about stretching and strengthening muscles, and about balance and rhythm. This popular class, which has been offered at the Mark Morris Dance Center since 2001, is appropriate for anyone with PD, no matter how advanced. No dance experience is required. In chairs, at a barré or moving across the floor, you will explore elements of modern dance, ballet, tap, folk, and social dancing, and Mark Morris company repertory in a non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches, and empowers. For more information, please visit www.danceforpd.org.

This class is with live musical accompaniment. Presented by Mark Morris Dance Group and Parkinson Foundation of the National Capital Area. Performance Timing: 90 minutes.
