Dance for Parkinson's empowers participants to explore music and movement in ways that are stimulating and refreshing.  These classes are designed for people of all ages and abilities, including people with Parkinson’s Disease and their companions, offering a fun and creative outlet in the form of dance.

The lead instructor, Susan Perlis, has taught dance for the past 50 years and has trained at Dance for Parkinson's workshops by Mark Morris Dance Group.
