The mission of the Davis Phinney Foundation is to help people with Parkinson’s live well today. The Foundation recognizes how much dance can add to that quality of life and asked Reconnect instructor Sarah Leversee to contribute to their blog for Parkinson’s Awareness Month in April, with photos of the Reconnect dancers by Scott Dressel-Martin.
We are so incredibly proud of our latest show, a collaborative dance + music + spoken word performance featuring the Artivists of Art as Action, which debuted November 18 & 19 in Broomfield, Colorado.
Reconnect with your Body
An unlikely group of dancers come together to revel in the healing powers of dance that are beneficial & enjoyable for every BODY, including those with Parkinson’s disease.
Reconnect with your Body Class
Dance has a reputation of being available to a select few: those blessed with a particular body type, the privilege of expensive training and the rare talent to master challenging technique. Every Wednesday afternoon, an unlikely group of dancers comes together and defies convention to revel in the healing powers of dance that are beneficial and enjoyable for every body, including those with Parkinson’s disease.
Reconnect with your Body classes empower participants to discover new ways to move by teaching how to think like a dancer, connect with your breath and find radical compassion for often ailing body parts.
