Colorado Conservatory of Dance
Art as Action is proud to call Colorado Conservatory of Dance home. Since 2015, CCD has provided AaA with affordable studio and office space. CCD’s mission includes using dance to foster community, create positive influence and inspire the individual. CCD and AaA both believe that dance should be accessible to all and CCD’s Adaptive Dance Expressions program strongly aligns with AaA’s Reconnect with your Body philosophy. We are so happy to be a part of the CCD family.
Dance for PD®
Movement Disorders Center
Our Reconnect with your Body program is an affiliate of the international Dance for PD network. Reconnect teacher Sarah Leversee completed the teacher training in 2011 and is a Stanley J. Wertheimer Fellow, which provides in-depth training and mentorship to exceptionally qualified teachers offering high quality dance classes modeled after the Dance for PD® program. Art as Action is deeply grateful to Program Director David Leventhal and the entire Dance for PD network for their support of Reconnect.
The Movement Disorders Center was founded in 2012 to provide state of the art interdisciplinary clinical care and community outreach to patients and families in the Rocky Mountain Region, to pursue research to treat and prevent these disorders and to educate the next generation of clinicians and researchers. We presented "From Disorder to Dancer" to MDC doctors and therapists and performed at their annual Parkinson's Symposium in 2016.
Davis Phinney Foundation
Parkinson Association of the Rockies
The DPF mission is to help people living with Parkinson’s to live well today. DPF is committed to supporting programs and research that deliver inspiration, information and tools that will enable people living with Parkinson’s to take more control in managing their disease. Olympic medalist and cycling great Davis Phinney attended Art as Action’s 2016 Reconnect Community Class with DPF Executive Director Polly Dawkins and DPF Healthcare Strategy & Technology Director John Dean.
The Parkinson Association of the Rockies provides the vital care that counts on the way to a cure by enhancing the quality of life for individuals with Parkinson’s disease through education, research, awareness and support for those with the disease, their families and the community. Art as Action Artistic Director Sarah Leversee recently contributed an article to PAR's Newsletter "Parkinson's Voice" about Reconnect with your Body. We also presented "From Disorder to Dancer" at PAR's 2016 e3 Conference.
