Dance for Parkinson's

At the Dance House, Cardiff and Blackwood Miners Institute

In Partnership with English National Ballet our Dance for Parkinson's classes are a fun and informal way for to discover the themes of our dance pieces.

Dance for Parkinson's has been proven to support people with Parkinson’s to develop confidence and strength, whilst temporarily relieving some participants of symptoms in everyday life. Classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of having Parkinson’s.

English National Ballet’s Dance for Parkinson’s programme has been running since 2008. We are proud to be part of the Dance for PD membership, to support Dance for Parkinson’s Partnership and People Dancing and to have an affiliation with Parkinson’s UK. ENB's national Dance for Parkinson’s programme enjoys close links with Parkinson’s UK and the European Parkinson’s Disease Association EPDA.

 

Reviews

"What a wonderful session and interesting concept for all working, living and dealing with people with Parkinson's. I am so glad I was able to attend. It inspired me to feel I would like to pursue dance more with people living with this condition."

Participant, Parkinson's Specialist Nurse, Cardiff

"Enjoyed every week I’m sure it helps with everyday life, we go away feeling very happy."
