Dancing brings hope and joy to people with Parkinson’s
“I love these classes … they have become a social gathering. The music uplifts me and the classes delay my body from the stiffness that comes with PD. After the classes we sit down and talk to each other about our challenges. We do not just stop and go home. It helps to chat with others.” – Deirdre Barnard Visser
Dance for PD®, founded in New York in 2001, offers specialised dance classes to people with Parkinson’s and their families, friends and care partners. Developed through a collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Company and Brooklyn Parkinson Group, this remarkable programme enables people with Parkinson’s to experience the joys and benefits of dance, while creatively addressing symptom-specific concerns related to balance, cognition, gait, depression and physical confidence. The programme is now offered in more than 250 communities in 26 countries.
Dance for Parkinson’s SA® has been offering classes in the greater Cape Town area since 2016 and has trained fourteen new instructors from around the country in the Dance for PD® method. Tarryn Tyack of JOZI is now offering classes in Illovo-Sandton. If you would like further information, please contact Tarryn on 064 686 0040 or email@example.com
