Dancing and Movement for Those with Parkinson’s Disease.

Parkinson’s Disease affects around 1.5 million Americans each year.  The disease is characterized by movement disorders, such as tremors, postural instability, difficulty in walking and controlling movement.  The Mark Morris Dance Group in Brooklyn developed the Dancing for PD program in 2001; this program has had considerable success in reducing the symptoms and delaying their progression. 

Dance Zone is now offering a dance program based on the Mark Morris Dancing for PD program.  Marge Sklar, owner of Dance Zone and teacher in the PD dance program, has recently studied with the Brooklyn group and is working on full-fledged certification in this style.  Our program is based on the Brooklyn program, but takes UP culture and weather into consideration as well.  All movements in the class can be done from either a seated or a standing position.  One class member recently remarked “Who would have thought you could get so much movement in while sitting in a chair?!”  Absolutely no dance experience is required.  Class is geared toward those who come on a particular day and fun is guaranteed!

Studies show that dancing can: improve quality of life; improve balance, gait and postural stability; decrease or lessen severity of tremor; reduce the likelihood of falls; decrease rigidity often associated with PD; improve control over hand and facial muscles.  Furthermore, the benefits of dance often carry over into everyday life competencies. 

Those who are ready to take control over their Parkinson’s symptoms are encouraged to come to one or several of our Dancing and Movement for Those with Parkinson’s sessions.  The class meets on Tuesdays and Fridays from 2-3:15 PM and Saturdays from 1-2:15 PM at Dance Zone, 1113 Lincoln Ave, Marquette.  The class is open to anyone with Parkinson’s and their families and caregivers.  There is no charge, but donations are gratefully accepted.  This class is jointly sponsored by Lake Superior Hospice and Dance Zone.  For more information, call Ruth at 906-225-7760 or Marge at 906-236-1457.
