Welcome to our Dance Moves Me! for Parkinson's Moving Day® Team Page!
Dance Moves Me! is a program of dance and rhythmic-movement classes for people living with PD. Our classes are modeled after the Dance for PD program, and incorporate strategies from John Argue's Parkinson's Disease & the Art of Moving. We currently have classes in Walnut Creek and Emeryville, California. Our dancers, known as the Dance Moves Me! Dynamos , meet on a weekly basis to dance and support each other, in an environment of compassion and understanding.
Instructors Debbie Sternbach and Woodrow Thompson, along with film producer Richard Cox, have recently produced their first video titled "Feeling Good". This video, featuring the Dance Moves Me! Dynamos performing one of their seated warm-up routines, will soon be released on you tube, with the goal of inspiring and encouraging people living with PD to dance and exercise.
Please join our team!
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease.
