Several clinical studies have shown the benefit of movement for people with Parkinson’s disease. Many participants in Parkinson’s movement programs report improved balance, range of motion, and confidence. While a partner is not necessary, care partners are invited and encouraged to participate.
Yes, I Can Move!TM
Yes, I Can Move! (YICM) is based on the nationally-recognized program, Dance For PD, developed by the Mark Morris dance group in Brooklyn, NY. YICM uses the creative and artistic power of movement to engage clients in exploring movement possibilities. Participants experience movement in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating and unique. In the process, stretching, muscle strengthening, balance, and coordination are improved through this program.
Instructor Joan Meggitt is a Teaching Member of Dance For PD and brings three decades of teaching experience to the program.
