About Dance for PD®

DancePD-8069 by Amber Star Merkens

The Mark Morris Dance Group's award-winning Dance for PD® program offers internationally-acclaimed dance classes for people with Parkinson’s disease in New York City and, through our network of partners and affiliates, in more than 250 communities in 25 countries. In Dance for PD® classes, people with Parkinson's at all levels of ability and mobility, along with their care partners and families, are empowered to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating and creative. Born from the idea that people with Parkinson’s could benefit from the insight and specific techniques and methods used by dancers to guide their own bodies and minds, Dance for PD is an aesthetic experience that focuses on developing artistry and grace while addressing such Parkinson's-specific concerns as balance, flexibility, coordination, gait, social isolation, and depression. Launched in 2001, the program also delivers comprehensive teacher training, creates and distributes innovative instructional media around the world, and nurtures relationships among other organizations so that classes based on our model are widely available. Evidence from 38 peer-reviewed scientific studies serves to underpin the efficacy and benefits of Dance for PD teaching methods.
