About Us

Our dancers explore different dance styles in fun and engaging classes especially designed to meet the challenges and needs for people living with Parkinson’s.

Join tutor Jane Ingall and experience a carefully planned program of appropriate, enjoyable, engaging and challenging dance activities.  No previous experience necessary. Jane brings to the program her years of dance teaching experience, with a particular focus on making dance accessible for all ages and abilities.

For people with Parkinson’s disease, rigorous dance classes led by trained teaching artists are becoming internationally recognized as an important, beneficial and welcome addition to the portfolio of recognized and researched exercise and therapy interventions.

The classes focus on Parkinson’s-specific concerns like mobility, balance, rhythm and flexibility in an enjoyable, social and communal environment. Dance classes create an environment emphasizing expression, creativity, engagement and positive relationship building.

Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to exercise, confidence building and an improved quality of life.
