Dance for Parkinson's Volunteer

We are looking for helpful and friendly volunteers to support and participate in our Dance for Parkinson’s classes.

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.

Responsibilities of volunteers include greeting participants on arrival, helping to set up the space, and taking part in the movement session. A background in dance/movement or the health sector is desirable although not essential as training will be provided.

Classes run termly and take place in Cardiff at the Dance House, Wales Millennium Centre on Thursdays 1-4pm, and Wednesday in Blackwood at Blackwood Miners Institute on Wednesdays 9.30am-12pm

If you would like to be get involved or for more details, please contact Sarah at sarah@ndcwales.co.uk for Cardiff, or artsdevelopment@caerphilly.gov.uk for Blackwood.
