About Dance for Parkinson's

Dance for Parkinson’s classes have been taking place at Dance Base since 2010. As a result of a ground-breaking partnership with Scottish Ballet and thanks to collaborative work with other national and international partners and significant support from many funders, there are now classes offered across many cities and towns in Scotland.
