Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.

Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance
students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being. They feel more fluid, confident and graceful in their movements using modern, ballet and folk dance forms.
