Dance for Parkinson's Online Learning Programme

This course prepares dance practitioners for the practical, in-person introductory and advanced workshops that constitute the primary components of a comprehensive training programme.

This eight-unit online course, developed by People Dancing, Dance for PD®, and Mark Morris Dance Group in association with the Dance for Parkinson's Partnership UK, provides dance practitioners and others with core foundational knowledge about the safe, effective, and creative delivery of dance sessions for people with Parkinson's.

The course prepares dance practitioners for the practical, in-person introductory and advanced workshops that constitute the primary components of a comprehensive training programme offered by partner organisations around the world. Successful completion of the online assessment is a pre-requisite for attendance at the Introduction to dance for Parkinson's Summer School course.

The online course can be purchased at a reduced rate as part of the Summer School application process.

"I am so happy with my online workshop. I have to congratulate the person who took the time to design that course... it is excellent! I am having a lot of fun doing it. It is perfect for me and it helps a lot as a dancer and creative teacher for children."

"...the online class is very informative, helpful and accessible! The risk assessment section was especially helpful. I enjoyed the multiple people sharing what works for them as students, as well as the many teachers sharing their experiences and tips. Most of all, the unit dealing with designing and planning a class and exercises were the most helpful, since they presented options I would not otherwise think of. The online class is equally well suited, either as a precursor to in-person training or as a refresher after training, or even while teaching."
