Dance and movement classes for people with Parkinson’s Disease and neurological disorders have stimulated research, an indication that the medical community acknowledges the benefits of dance for persons with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological disorders including Autism, Dementia, Multiple Sclerosis and stroke.
Our instructors have received special training sponsored by the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson’s group in Brooklyn, New York. Ballet Spartanburg offers the only class of this design in the Upstate for these individual needs. Carlos Aqudelo, Artistic Director and Elaine Lang, teach the class.
Classes meet September - June, the first and third Friday of each month at 11:00 am. at the Ballet Spartanburg Dance Center Studios on the first floor of the East Wing at the Chapman Cultural Center. The first class of the month is followed by a monthly meeting of the Spartanburg Parkinson Association.
Starting in the fall of 2018, we are pleased to announce the class will meet every week at a10 am. We will add this to our calendar on our website to keep all classes current.
