New regional partnerships launching with DanceEast and National Dance Company Wales
We are delighted to announce the launch of two new Dance for Parkinson’s regional programmes this season in Ipswich and Cardiff.
We are teaming up withand , to bring the English National Ballet Dance for Parkinson’s model to Ipswich and Cardiff.
The new Ipswich programme began this season in partnership with DanceEast, with two open taster sessions and a group theatre visit to London, to see English National Ballet perform of the wonderfully festive, Nutcracker. In January 2015, we launch a pilot term of 12 weekly classes in Ipswich, based on our upcoming programme, Modern Masters.
A similar taster class will take place in Cardiff in February 2015, in partnership with National Dance Company Wales. This provides local people with Parkinson’s their friends, family and carers with a special chance to find out more about our work. Weekly classes in Cardiff will commence in April 2015.
