The School of Dance at George Mason University announces free Dance for Parkinson’s Disease (Dance for PD®) classes, offered this fall on their Fairfax campus. Classes Begin: this Friday, October 1st
Dance for PD is a movement-based class that begins slowly with warm-up movements and progresses to combinations of movements to a variety of uplifting music. The class offers not only physical benefits, but also reduces the dancers’ social isolation which is commonly associated with this neurological disease.

To register and learn more about this program, please email Assistant Professor Shaun D’Arcy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lucy Bowen McCauley will be leading the classes offered at George Mason this fall. Lucy Bowen has been leading Dance for PD classes for thirteen years. BMDC is the only Dance Company that is a licensed affiliate of the Mark Morris Dance Group’s researched-backed Dance for PD program in the Mid-Atlantic region.
