Dance For Parkinson’s

American Repertory Ballet’s Dance for Parkinson’s program is for people with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers. Each class has live music and creates a warm sanctuary for movement exploration, and a social atmosphere to support artistic venture.

  • Classes are infused with guided imagery, vocalization, and movement to provide participants with a dynamic experience.
  • Participants are encouraged to ‘think like dancers’ and to be creative and expressive.
  • Open to all levels of ability! Although participants may experience therapeutic relief, this class is not considered therapy, but a place where people come together to move, share, and enjoy the elements of dance.
