A series of free ‘Dance for Parkinson’s’ classes will start at the Des Moines Senior Center (2045 S. 216th Street) Oct. 1, and continue through Nov. 26.
“Each eight-week series of dance classes uses dance, live music and community to develop artistry and grace while addressing such concerns as balance, flexibility, isolation and depression,” reads an announcement. “Working with professional dancers trained in the Dance for PD® method, participants are inspired to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable and stimulating. Whether seated or standing, participants will enjoy this creative and welcoming environment. Classes are suitable for people with Parkinson’s Disease, their caregivers, and individuals with movement disorders. With live music. No dance experience necessary.”
