Our next Akada dance scholarship recipient is @artbeatdancecenter 🥳🥇 •
Every week, they teach FREE dance classes for patients with Parkinson's Disease and their caregivers. Over the last 15 years, dance classes for people living with Parkinson's have stimulated research at major universities around the world, indicating that the academic medical community acknowledges the potential benefits of dance for people with Parkinson's Disease. •
These studies have shown that dance classes can improve balance, control of movement, and overall mode. Many participants report feeling strong, uplifted, and empowered!
Art Beat's Dance for Parkinson's classes tailor movement in a way that allows the students to receive all the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of dancing. •
The participants are encouraged to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating, and creative. The studio offers Dance for Parkinson's class once a week at the studio as well as take it out to several assisted living facilities every week to provide Dance for Parkinson's classes in the community.
The classes are offered free to the patients, their family members, and their caregivers. •
They currently do not have any funding to support this program so they will be using the funds from the scholarship to assist the patients living with Parkinson's Disease. Congratulations to you!! 🥇🤩 #akadasupportsdancers #danceforparkinsons #dancescholarship
