Everyone with PD, family and friends are welcome... no dance experience is necessary! Participants have the opportunity to experience a variety of dance themes including folk dance, ballet, jazz, tap, and musical theater numbers, all with an emphasis on using the power of music to move.
A support group is a way for people to help Parkinson's Disease patients cope with problems they all share. These groups offer social and emotional support to patients and their care partners, education and information from peers and professionals and a chance to be active for oneself and for others in the community. Members give and receive information and encouragement through the mail, phone calls, and group meetings. There are more than 40 support groups now active in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland. Groups meet weekly or monthly.
