DANCING THROUGH THE SYMPTOMSLess

DANCING THROUGH THE SYMPTOMS


Moving & Shaking at The Parkinson's Exercise and Wellness Center addresses more than a love for dance. It utilizes the philosophies of dance to delay the symptoms of Parkinson's Disease through confidence, rhythm, creativity, self-expression, extension and flexibility by moving the body in a conscious way. Incorporating dance styles from various genres and eras, Moving & Shaking involves multiple senses, social interaction, cognitive tasks, sensory integration and stability. Participants work on footwork, side-to-side movements, hip opening and big arm gestures.


This Parkinson's-specific group class enhances emotional, cognitive and social well-being for an overall improved quality of life. Additionally, Moving & Shaking is a great mind-body intervention in the complex symptom-treatment landscape of Parkinson's Disease. While traditional dance classes are an excellent source of exercise, this form of dance therapy differs by focusing on aesthetic and recreational features. For a fun and effective way to fight the symptoms of Parkinson's, Moving & Shaking requires no experience nor age classification.
