Dance/Movement Therapy motivates people with Parkinson’s to keep moving and helps to decrease Parkinson’s symptoms, allowing for more controlled and organized movement. Focus is on participants’ movement rather than traditional dance, though dance styles can be suggested. Benefits include increased flexibility, energy and range of motion.
