Why Dance for Parkinson's?
-- Dancing is joyful, especially to upbeat music.
-- Dancing is a social activity.
-- Dancing is excellent exercise. A dance class provides a complete workout. Dancing stretches, strengthens, and relaxes muscles.
-- Dancing is, first and foremost, a mental activity. Dancing involves using the brain as well as the body to control movement. The brain gets a complete workout too.
-- Dancing makes use of the senses. Conscious use of vision, hearing and touch make moving easier for persons with PD, just as it does for dancers.
