We were a part of ACVO's fantastic Mental Health Awareness Week 2022 Project, Stories from Aberdeen. They produced a brilliant webpage focusing on the participants of our classes along with the tutors who lead it - click the ACVO logo to take a look!

The Dance for Parkinson’s programme was first created by the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York and was devised by Programme Director David Leventhal. Dance for Parkinson’s was founded in 2001 and offered specialised dance classes to people with Parkinson’s, their families, friends and care partners. The programme was originally delivered in New York City and then rolled out to 100 communities in 20 countries around the world.

Citymoves is delighted to host a weekly class designed especially for people living with Parkinson’s, their families and carers. These classes are suitable for people with no dance experience and will develop confidence and creativity, whilst addressing Parkinson’s specific concerns such as: balance, flexibility, coordination, gait and social isolation.

 

The session is followed by tea/coffee, cake and a blether!

Participant fees supported through Aberdeen Branch Parkinson's UK – funded by ACVO currently.
