Parkinson in motion
Dance and sing with Parkinson on the move! The program is designed specifically for people with Parkinson’s. Dance classes started in 2007 and quickly became an important activity for many Montrealers living with Parkinson’s disease. A singing program was added in 2009. Moving to the beat of music is therapeutic, creative and fun! Dancing and singing with other like-minded people creates an atmosphere of pride, mutual aid and friendship. Classes are currently offered in three neighborhoods of the city (Rosemont-La-Petite-Patrie, Center-ville, Notre-Dame-de-Grâce), and others will open depending on demand.

What people are saying about the event :
I decided to participate in the dance class to improve my posture and my gait. But it was much more than that … Music takes us away; it’s fun, it brings me well-being. The atmosphere is always good and the dancing is simple and pleasant.
When I first decided to take the course, it was to encourage my husband who has Parkinson’s. I quickly realized that I enjoy it as much as he does! Extension exercises give me greater flexibility and are very beneficial. The two teachers are extraordinary and always full of enthusiasm.
