Move4Parkinson’s in conjunction with Dance Theatre Ireland (DTI) offer modern dance classes at DTI for people with Parkinson’s and their care-partners. DTI is part of the Dance for PD membership programme, a dance programme which is proven to improve physical and emotional wellbeing for people with Parkinson’s in over 100 communities around the world. 

This class takes place every Friday from 11am – 12.3pm at DTI’s Centre for Dance in Dún Laoghaire, County Dublin.

As part of the international Dance for PD programme, DTI Artistic Directors Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick have partaken in specialised training with David Leventhal in the USA on providing dance techniques and classes to people with Parkinson’s. According to international research, people with Parkinson’s have experienced improvements in gait, tremor, facial expression, short-term mobility, confidence, and social inclusion as a result of their participation in Dance for Parkinson’s classes.

The “Dancing Well With Parkinson’s” project is kindly supported by The Ireland Funds and the HSE. DTI is supported by the Arts Council and DLRCC.
