Dance for Parkinson's Northampton Class Series

Studio Helix (3rd Floor Thornes Market, 150 Main Street, Northampton MA 01060)


Come dance! This class is modeled after the Dance for PD® classes developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group and is designed specifically for individuals with Parkinson’s Disease and their spouses, family members, friends, and care givers. Classes integrate various movement forms such as ballet, modern, folk dance, improvisation, and rhythmic styles to engage participants in an aesthetic experience that develops artistry while also addressing various PD-specific concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, isolation, and depression. Classes are appropriate for anyone with PD and no dance training is required!
