Dance With Parkinson’s

Let’s move!

This free class keeps individuals moving in a fun, welcoming, and safe environment. Our instructors will guide you through exercises designed to enhance and maintain mobility, flexibility, balance, posture coordination, and strength, which are all easily modifiable for various levels of mobility.  Our professionally-trained instructors use live music, storytelling, and movement styles from around the world. In this social, creative outlet, participants can discover or rediscover the joy of movement. Caregivers and loved ones are welcome to attend, although not required. 

Urbanity’s instructors are safety certified and have trained with David Leventhal of Mark Morris Dance Group, who codified the original Dance for PD curriculum in collaboration with Brooklyn Parkinson's Group. 

All are welcome; no previous dance experience required! Participants may start taking class at any time of the year!

It makes me more aware of movement in my daily life. Betsi is always positive. Today I didn’t want to come and as soon as I walked in the door I felt better. It’s a great resource

It feels great to be able to move. It makes my body feel loose. It feels wonderful to open your body and it’s fun!
