Would you like to see Dance for Parkinson’s in Northern Virginia?
Paula Kyle, a local dance instructor, is keen to start a Dance for Parkinson’s class in the Fairfax area. We’re trying to get an idea of how many people would be interested. Below you’ll find a description of what Paula has in mind for her class as well as her bio.
A Dance for Parkinson’s class is built on the premise that professionally trained dancers are movement experts whose knowledge can benefit persons with PD. Research has shown that music and dance can help ease the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. Each class develops physical as well as cognitive skills and the chance for the student to explore their imaginations in a safe, supportive and creative environment. Studies have shown that dance not only improves mobility but also one’s quality of life. Dance for Parkinson’s breaks the participants sense of isolation by coming together to partake in a high quality artistic experience.
This class is for the Parkinson’s student as well as their caregivers.
After completing the on-line course and training at The Mark Morris Studio in New York in the Spring of 2016, Paula Kyle was accepted as a professional dance instructor in the Dance for PD program. Her 17 years of dance training and performance experience earlier in her life was a key factor in being accepted.
Ms. Kyle is certified in Triyoga, Yoga Nidra, Yoga Therapy and Pilates. She has over 40 years teaching experience. She has been teaching yoga and Pilates at the US Senate since 1996.
