Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PT

Don’t miss out on the upcoming webinar, “Movement & Rhythm,” set to take place on August 29, 2023. This event is designed for those curious about the beneficial effects of dance on addressing Parkinson’s challenges.

Parkinson’s disease, affecting approximately 10 million individuals worldwide, can lead to issues such as rigid limbs, tremors, diminished muscle control, and slowed movement. The condition can impair walking, and balance, and increase the risk of falls. Furthermore, patients may encounter emotional difficulties such as depression, as well as cognitive decline marked by slowed thinking and memory problems.
Dance for PD offers individuals living with Parkinson’s a holistic approach to well-being. Beyond physical activity, it provides a platform for social interaction and mental stimulation. However, it transcends being solely a therapeutic method; this unique dance form also serves as a means of restoring self-esteem and cultivating joy in the participants’ lives.Numerous published studies have highlighted the transformative effects of dance for Parkinson’s patients. Engaging in dance has been shown to result in tangible improvements in both physical and psychological aspects. A multitude of studies have demonstrated that participating in dance classes twice a week enhances balance, motor skills, range of motion, and endurance.

A 2011 study in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience found even a single dance class improved limb mobility, finger dexterity, and facial expressions. Participants reported enriched lives, expressing feelings of freedom and relaxation.
