Care and Treatment

Classes

Our classes are based on the innovative Dance for PD program designed by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group. Using this method, professional dancers draw on their unique expertise to help people with Parkinson’s Disease and their caregivers engage sight, sound, touch, thought, and imagination to inspire movement and expression. Dancing in chairs, at a barre, or standing, experienced teaching artists lead participants in an enjoyable blend of modern dance, ballet, and social dancing. While strengthening, balancing, and moving in rhythm to live music, people with PD also experience the power of dance and music to sharpen attention, inspire, and empower. Supported by the National Parkinson's Foundation.

Walk-ins welcome.

New Technology Used to Treat Parkinson's Disease

Deep brain stimulation has shown promise in treating conditions such as Parkinson's disease. This piece discusses how scientists are now using the technology to eavesdrop on problem neural circuits.
