Dance for Parkinson's
The English National Ballet Dance for Parkinson’s programme has been running since 2008 and is proven to support people with Parkinson’s to develop confidence and strength, whilst temporarily relieving some participants of symptoms in everyday life. Participants also have the special opportunity to attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events and see the Company perform.
Based on English National Ballet’s contemporary and classical repertoire, Dance for Parkinson’s classes provide a fun and informal way for participants to discover the themes, choreography and music of the ballets. Classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of having Parkinson’s.
Dance for Life
Ballet Mafia’s ambition is to promote the benefits of ballet beyond the professional stage and the theatres of the world and to highlight the less well known recreational and therapeutic benefits ballet can bring.
The ballet did make me urgently want to move more, and move better and hinted at how this might be possible.
