Parkinson's Support Group Dance Demo
The Reconnect with your Body Dance Demo is about 1.25 hours long and includes:
- An introduction about the joys and benefits of dance for Parkinson’s
- A “mini class” for support group attendees to experience the magic of Reconnect
- Class begins in chairs (preferably chairs without arms) and then moves to standing for those who are able. The standing exercises can be done sitting for those bodies that need/want to remain seated.
- Class includes a wide variety of music that will inspire your body to dance!
Reconnect with your Body explores the power of dance, community and artistic expression. Dance has the ability to transform and heal – plus it’s fun! Reconnect empowers 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. No dance experience is required.
