Offered virtually every Wednesday 1:00pm-2:15pm!

**There is no class on the 1st Wednesday of the month.

The 3rd Wednesday of the month Dance for Parkinson’s is offered in a hybrid format in-person at Motion Pacific as well as virtually.

Our classes are based on the innovative and internationally renowned Dance for PD® program designed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group. Using this method, professional dancers draw on their unique expertise and artistic experience to support people with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers to engage sight, sound, touch, thought, and imagination to inspire movement, expression and community.

Classes are appropriate for anyone with Parkinson’s no matter how advanced. Movement modifications will be made available.

No Dance Experience is Required. No Charge to Participate.

Combining elements of modern dance, ballet, social dancing, choreography and other movement modalities, teachers facilitate an enjoyable, stimulating, artistic experience. While dancing, whether in chairs, at a barre, or standing, everyone in the class explores dancing in an enjoyable, non-pressured, social environment in which live music energizes, enriches and empowers. We value creating connection with our community and the power dance has to connect our minds, hearts and body

Classes are lead by professional dancers and trained Dance for Parkinson’s teachers Molly Katzman, Katie Trigg, Maria Walsh with live musical accompaniment by celebrated musician John Malkin.
