Dance for Parkinsons
January 17, 2024 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating indefinitely
Dance for Parkinson’s brings their award-winning dance program to Stretford Public Hall every Wednesday from 12 pm.
It is run by Lewis Bailey who is the Dance Teacher and Exercise Provider for the Parkinson’s group. He has over 20 years of experience as a Latin and Ballroom dancer and thoroughly enjoys teaching others to dance.
The class is for anyone affected by Parkinson’s. The dance for Parkinson’s class is a great way to get the body moving in a fun and inclusive environment. Dancing is known to reduce stress and alleviate physical and emotional pressures from the body and is therefore cited as being one of the best forms of exercise to take part in.
The class involves a number of warm up activities which range from breathing exercises, stretches for the body, and movement sequences. We then move onto some Latin and Ballroom steps, or some creative movement to music. It caters for a wide range of abilities and the class can be done seated throughout if required.
IS THERE A CHARGE
No, all classes are funded by the Trafford branch of Parkinson’s UK
DO I NEED TO BOOK
No, just turn up 10 minutes before the class is due to start.
