Presented by Dance for Parkinson’s Partnership UK and People Dancing in partnership with Yorkshire Dance.

The course will provide participants with an insight into how to structure dance classes for people living with Parkinson’s, as well as focusing on the artistic imperative behind a Parkinson’s dance programme.

Dance practitioners will gain an overview of the effects of the condition on dance participants, learn how to ensure safety for all participants and benefit from the practical experience of devising and delivering content for a Dance for Parkinson’s class.

Course leaders: Dr. Sophia Hulbert and visiting artists from English National Ballet.

Course participants must have successfully completed the Dance for Parkinson’s online learning programme assessment before taking part in the course. Access to the learning programme is included in the course fee.
