A Global View of Dance for Parkinson’s

Posted on

World Dance for Parkinson's Day
In honor of World Parkinson’s Day (April 11) and International Dance Day (April 29), more than fifteen dance organizations have come together to celebrate the vibrant diversity of Dance for Parkinson’s programs in ten countries.

Every day or two, starting April 11, we’ll be featuring a different Dance for Parkinson’s program, presenting documentaries, class videos and other resources that highlight the richness of Dance for Parkinson’s practice around the world.

Join us for the culmination of the project on World Dance for Parkinson’s Day—April 29—when you’ll be able to dance your way from New York to London, Pune to Brisbane, Amsterdam to Tel Aviv, and many places in between.

It all happens at www.danceforparkinsons.online

Did you know . . .
March is Professional Social Work month?

What do social workers do and why are they important to the Parkinson community? Join our friend, Nancy Fiedelman, as she leads a discussion and answers your questions about what you can expect from social workers, particularly in a hospital or long term care setting. We’d like to hear from you about your experiences. Do you have some helpful tips to share?
