Dance for Parkinson's Workshop
1 June 2018, 2.00pm
Studio 404, 404 Church St, Parramatta

Cost: Free.

Parkinson's Disease is the second most common neurological disease, after Dementia. Research suggests that dance may be an appropriate and effective strategy for improving both physical and mental symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. “Beyond the benefits of exercise, dance offers social and emotional interactions which may increase the quality of life, access to movement, and participation for the members of the PD community” (Westheimer 2008; Houston 2012). 

Dance for Parkinson’s classes are open and appropriate for all levels and no experience is necessary. This unique workshop in Parramatta will be led by Dance for Parkinson’s Director and head teacher, Erica Rose Jeffrey and prominent community dance artist, Philip Piggin, and their team.
