Dancing With Parkinson’s – Creative Movment

Dancing with Parkinson'sDancing With Parkinson’s

If you are living with Parkinson’s either yourself or a good friend or partner, the Dance Network Association are offering a number of Dance sessions between now & Christmas.

Research from Parkinson’s UK estimates that there are around 145,000 people in the UK living with Parkinson’s. By 2025, this is expected to rise to around 168,000. 1 in 37 people alive today will be diagnosed with the disease in their lifetime.  Exercise has shown to be very beneficial for people living with Parkinson’s; to manage or potentially slow the progress of physical symptoms and to help other associated symptoms such as mental health.
