Project description:

Citymoves is delighted to host a weekly class designed especially for people living with Parkinson’s, their families and carers. These classes are suitable for people with no dance experience and will develop confidence and creativity, whilst addressing Parkinson’s specific concerns such as: balance, flexibility, coordination, gait and social isolation. Class is accompanied by a live musician, adding an extra layer of ‘magic’. The session is followed by tea/coffee, cake and a blether!
