Dance for Parkinson’s

 

Based on English National Ballet’s contemporary and classical repertoire, Dance for Parkinson’s classes provide a fun and informal way for participants to discover the themes, choreography and music of the ballets.

Participants also have the special opportunity to attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events and see the Company perform.

This programme is proven to support people with Parkinson’s to develop confidence and strength, whilst temporarily relieving some participants of symptoms in everyday life. Classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of having Parkinson’s.

The ballet did make me urgently want to move more, and move better and hinted at how this might be possible.

It is a special experience you offer people with Parkinson’s and their carers and I hope that many more people in this area will be able to experience this in the future.
