at Leith Community Centre

New classes in collaboration with Theiya Arts


Dance Base and Theiya Arts are working together to deliver movement and music sessions for people living with Parkinson’s and their families, friends and carers.

The sessions will explore South Asian dance styles like Bhatantanatyam, Kathak, Kandyan dance, and Bollywood, all through the Dance for Parkinson’s approach.

We’ll be offering taster sessions with local community groups, before beginning a block of 9 weekly classes throughout June and July 2024.

Classes will be held at Leith Community Centre.
