Dance for Movement Disorders
- There are many benefits to attending Dance for Movement Disorders classes regularly, including mental cueing for increased fluidity and flexibility in overall body movements, enhanced coordination, improved balance through the use of imagery and visualization, improved gait in walking, and a feeling of community and positive unity through a shared dance experience. Most participants surpass their own perceived limitations and utilize new neuropathways to bypass the physical restrictions that are inherent in Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
- The class begins seated in chairs in which combinations of movements expand physical limitations while challenging mental activities connect mind to body. The class then proceeds to the barre, then across the floor using rhythmic stepping patterns to instill confidence and increase mobility.
