You are Invited to Dance Party for Parkinson’s, a Partnership of Steffi Nossen School of Dance and Burke Rehabilitation Hospital
Join the summer series of Dance Party for Parkinson’s, a collaboration of the Steffi Nossen School of Dance and Burke Rehabilitation Hospital Fitness Center. Classes will take place at the fitness center, located at 785 Mamaroneck Ave in White Plains, NY on Fridays from 5:00 – 6:00 PM. Eight weeks of classes will begin July 8th.
Classes are taught by dance professionals who have trained in the internationally-acclaimed Mark Morris Dance for PD program, a collaboration between the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s Group. Each week the class will present movement sequences drawing from musical theater, ballet, jazz, modern, folk dance tap, social dancing and more to create a dynamic and enjoyable hour of dance and artistic exploration in a group setting. Through dance, classes will address PD-specific concerns such as balance, coordination, flexibility, gait, and physical confidence while simultaneously developing artistry, grace, and creativity. Whether seated or standing, participants will experience the joy of body connection through the interaction of movement and music along with their partners, families and caregivers.
Join in to share an aesthetic experience that will keep your spirit dancing all week! No dance experience. Drop-ins are welcome. Join solo or with a partner. Class fee: $96 Individual; $160 per couple; $15 single class per person. Register at the Fitness Center or call 914-597-2805 for further information or to obtain a registration form.
