Dance for Parkinson’s utilizes the power of dance, music and creativity to improve mobility and quality of life. The program is offered to people with Parkinson's disease (PD), their caregivers, spouses and partners. Dance for PD® is an internationally acclaimed method in which participants explore movement and music in ways that are enjoyable, mentally stimulating, and creative. No dance experience is required. The class is a comfortable pace. All levels of mobility are welcome. The project promotes emotional, cognitive, physical and social integration through dance instruction to music that explores elements of different dance forms, sparks the aesthetic imagination, develops grace and builds community in a non-pressured, social environment in which music energizes, enriches and empowers. Important to all is that the project is rigorous, creative, and based in the Arts. Presented by Ruth Davidson Hahn & Company and Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School.
