Dance For Parkinson's

Wed 13 Jul 2022

90mins

£4

We are delighted to continue our Dance for Parkinson’s Scotland classes, featuring elements of ballet and contemporary dance with a focus on the 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 the fluidity of movement, balance, coordination, expression, posture, and rhythm.

The classes also include activities focused on problem-solving, improvisation, vocal skills, 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 afterward with tea and coffee.

Classes will be on Wednesdays 10am - 12 noon at the Cochrane Hall, Alva.

There will be a chance to socialise with fellow participants from 10:00 am, and again after the class until 11:45 am.

We're having a break for Summer, but we are hosting a one-off Summer session on the 13th of July 2022.
