Dance classes for people with Parkinson’s Disease 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, teaches this 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.

Ballet Spartanburg is honored to partner with JM Smith Foundation to sponsor free classes to patients with Parkinson’s Disease and other neurological disorders.
