Parkinson's Dance

Parkinson's Dance

A fun and creative movement-based class, designed specifically to address the symptoms of Parkinson’s.

With support of Somerset NHS Foundation Trust and The Octagon Theatre, classes are led by a team of two specially trained, friendly teachers, using the Parkinson’s Dance Science model that combines creative dance, research evidence and physiotherapeutic effect. Classes feature a variety of dance styles, focusing on: posture, strength, coordination, balance, creativity, suppleness and most of all, fun!

Participants will be supported throughout with seated and standing options, plus time to chat over a free cup of tea or coffee at the end of every session.

When: Mondays 10am - 11.30am 
Where: Ridgway Hall, Staceys Court, Bow Street, Langport, TA10 9PQ 

Summer Term: 22 April – 8 July (no sessions on 6 May, 27 May)
