Sharing Dance Parkinson's

Dance can change lives! Sharing Dance Parkinson's was informed and inspired by the Mark Morris Dance Group's Dance for PD® program. The program is specially designed to make dance accessible to people living with Parkinson's disease (PD).
 
Numerous studies indicate that dance is uniquely beneficial for people living with PD - improving gait, posture, and balance (Shanahan et al., 2015). Beyond physical benefits, dance encourages social inclusion and personal and artistic expression. Increased social engagement (Foster et al., 2013) and improved quality of life (Heiberger , 2011) have also been captured in research studying the impact of dance for people living with PD. Click here to read more about the Sharing Dance Parkinson's program and the benefits of dance for people with Parkinson's Disease.
