Since 2011 we have made regular visits to the Dance House – the home of– in Cardiff with open taster sessions to introduce our Dance for Parkinson’s model and approach.
We are now pleased to work in partnership withto develop of our fourth full regional programme. NDCWales is an award-winning, Cardiff based, contemporary dance company presenting work by some of the most celebrated international choreographers alongside creations by new talent from Wales.
Dance for Parkinson’s brings a unique opportunity for people with Parkinson’s in Cardiff, Newport and the surrounding areas to engage with high quality dance classes in the professional environment of the dance studio. Carers, friends and family are also invited to join in with weekly artistic and creative dance classes which have the added benefits of improved mental and physical health and wellbeing, the chance for social interaction with like-minded people and most importantly, provide a fun and energising activity suitable for all.
“What a wonderful session and interesting concept for all working, living and dealing with people with Parkinson's. I am so glad I was able to attend. It inspired me to feel I would like to pursue dance more with people living with this condition.” - Participant, Parkinson's Specialist Nurse, Cardiff, 2012
