This workshop will focus on the positive impact of dance and movement on the progression of Parkinson’s Disease and will provide participants with the basis to work with this population through dance.
As a medical doctor and a dance/movement therapist, Tania Lazuk will share her knowledge and expertise about the second most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder, and she will present research-based benefits and positive effects of specific movements, dance forms and improvisation for people with Parkinson’s Disease. The workshop will include a theoretical presentation, movement experiences and videos.
This event is presented by the National Centre for Dance Therapy and supported by the RBC Foundation. It is dedicated to all the dance professionals and health care professionals who are interested in bringing joy and pleasure through dance and movement to people living with Parkinson’s Disease.
