Dance Therapy for Movement Disorders

Wellness in Motion: Dance Therapy for Movement Disorders

Increase mobility and flexibility through simple creative movement, nonstrenuous dance exercise and relaxation techniques.

Class is tailored to the needs of the participants: students with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, stroke and other movement disorders. Movement experiences are provided on chairs as well as ambulatory explorations. We do not have a set pattern of exercises; rather, we develop each class through improvisation and shared leadership, with a wide variety of music to provide rhythmic support and energy. All ages and stages welcome. Please call Chelsea Spraker at 212.415.5554 to inquire about cost if you would like to join the class mid-semester.
