Dance for Parkinsons Scotland

In partnership with Scottish Ballet and Dance Base, we're delighted to be hosting a series of warm and informal Dance for Parkinson’s Scotland classes, featuring elements of ballet and contemporary dance with a focus on Scottish Ballet’s repertoire.

Using the themes and movement from current productions, specially trained Scottish Ballet Dance Artists lead participants to develop movement skills with particular focus on fluidity of movement, balance, coordination, expression, posture and rhythm.

The classes also include activities focused on problem solving, improvisation, vocal skills, and repetition from memory and multi-tasking, which are all key areas for people with Parkinson's. Face-to-face classes feature live music accompaniment, with time for participants to socialise afterwards with tea and coffee.

During this time we are unable to deliver classes in person, however, sessions are being delivered online by Scottish Ballet. Please email our Creative Learning Team for more information.
