Dance for Parkinson's is an innovative and collaborative dance program for people with Parkinson's in the Houston community. The program is brought to Houstonians by Houston Ballet Foundation and Houston Area Parkinson Society (HAPS).
A pianist accompanies the class and incorporates various types of music, encouraging participants to dance independently and find their own beat. The class meets on Monday afternoons from 12:30 p.m.- 1:30 p.m.
If you would like to participate in Dance for Parkinson's, or any of the HAPS programs, please contact HAPS at 713-626-7114 or online at www.hapsonline.org. Beginners are welcome, no partners required—just a willingness to have fun!
