The Dance for Parkinson’s Scotland programme is a joint initiative managed by Dance Base, Scotland's National Centre for Dance and Scottish Ballet, Scotland's National Dance Company, and delivered in partnership with Parkinson's UK.
Seven Dance for Parkinson’s hubs have been set up across Scotland, which operate on a weekly basis, and have been designed especially for those with Parkinson’s disease and their families and carers. These sessions are suitable for those people with no dance experience and will develop participant’s confidence and creativity, whilst addressing Parkinson’s specific concerns such as; balance, flexibility, coordination, gait and social isolation. The session includes tea/coffee, biscuits and a blether!
