Dance Classes for People with Parkinson’s are taking place every Friday from February to May at Dance House in Dublin. Led by professional dance artist, Ailish Claffey, participants are inspired to explore movement and music in ways that are energising, fun, stimulating and creative.

Internationally, people effected by Parkinson’s disease have hugely benefitted from taking part in dance classes as their range and fluidity of motion, multi-tasking and balance increase in addition to co-ordination and efficiency of movement.

Committed to developing contemporary dance within communities, dance artist Ailish Claffey works in collaboration with community groups and has designed and delivered many large scale projects for various groups of mixed abilities. She is certified by Mark Morris Dance Company, Brooklyn to teach Dance for Parkinson’s disease.

The class is an opportunity to increase your flexibility, range of motion, meet new people and have fun. Dance for Parkinson’s is open to all and care givers, spouses and friends are welcome to join in.
