Dance for PD®, founded in 2001, offers specialised dance classes to people with Parkinson’s, their families, friends and care partners in eight locations around New York City and through our network of affiliates in more than 250 communities in 25 countries around the world. The classes allow people with Parkinson’s to experience the joys and benefits of dance while creatively addressing symptom-specific concerns related to balance, cognition, motor skill, depression and physical confidence. In this article David tells us more about the programme.
