The Move to Connect  class for people living with Parkinson's Diseases uses dancing for fun and dancing for dancing’s sake. The classes are vivacious and usually involve learning a routine. We sometimes add stage props such as hats or scarves. 

Please call for dates, location and cost.

Several studies have shown that dancing improves:

  • balance

  • flexibility

  • coordination

  • gait

  • mood

  • confidence

  • social isolation

  • depression

There are many research articles supporting the fact that dancing is extremely beneficial for people diagnosed with the Parkinson’s condition.  Here are a few links to prominent scientific publications.
