Simple Movement (formerly Dance Practice for Parkinson’s) provides a unique movement experience to affect positive change. It provides exercise, mental stimulation, conscious use of the senses and social interaction in a joyful activity. It incorporates exercise with music, assisting participants in moving to rhythm, beat, melody and mood.
Classes are designed to accommodate participants at all levels of mobility (seated, needing support, ambulatory), with dancers encouraged to engage at their own comfort level. Movement is the key to managing balance, coordination and gait and can help revitalize your strength, flexibility and outlook.
Simple Movement is an opportunity for people with Parkinson’s to take part in one of the latest exercise programs recommended for improved mobility. Spouses and care partners are welcomed and are encouraged to participate.
Explore your body’s ability to move using focused attention, progressive dance sequences and the power of music.
