Designed for adults who want to keep their body and brain active and healthy, regardless of their mobility, skill or age. Please come and feed your body and spirit with music and movement, be physically and mentally inspired and stimulated, have fun, meet some new friends and feel good! Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to movement and exercise, confidence building and an improved quality of life. You will experience gentle exercise to music, much of it taking place sitting in a circle of chairs, as you’re guided through a carefully planned program of dance activities.

Suitable for people who experience Parkinsons, and other conditions such as multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, arthritis and chronic fatigue.

Classes have resumed at the same time and places as previously – Dance for People with Parkinson’s at Tuggeranong Arts Centre on Wednesdays 11:15am-12:30pm.  Dance for People with Parkinson’s at Belco Arts on Tuesdays 1:15-2:30pm and Dance for Everyone at Belco Arts on Fridays 12-1pm.
