We are a group of 15 dance organizations and individual teaching artists from 10 countries who offer classes for people with Parkinson's in our communities. In addition to our commitment to serving our own constituents, we collaborate formally and informally with each other to exchange good ideas, teaching practice and opportunities for program development.
Through World Dance for Parkinson's Day, and this virtual portal, we aim to highlight the breadth, richness and diversity of dance-based programming for people with Parkinson's around the world.
Partners include: Mark Morris Dance Group/Dance for PD® (US), Hamilton City Ballet (CA), English National Ballet (UK), Musical Moving (UK), Canada's National Ballet School (CA), Queensland Ballet (AU), Dançar com Parkinson (PT), DaPoPa (FR), Care to Dance (NL), Dutch National Ballet/Creative Wellness Foundation (NL), Scottish Ballet, (UK), Yasmeen Godder (IL), Houston Ballet (US), Skånes Dansteater (SE), Dancing with Parkinson's (CA), and Hrishikesh Pawar Contemporary Dance (IN).
We've chosen programs representing a range of styles, approaches and sizes--but all of us share a similar philosophy and mission: to share the joys and benefits of dance, creativity and community with people with Parkinson's and their families around the world.
This April, we invite you to be part of the movement!
