Parkinson’s Dance Program in Pennington, NJ

The Parkinson Alliance is proud to sponsor the Parkinson’s Dance Program at Capital Health Medical Center–Hopewell in Pennington, New Jersey.  Join in every Thursday 1:30–2:30 pm through June 15, 2017 in the 4th floor conference room, One Capital Way, Pennington, NJ. This dance class utilizes specifically designed creative movement and choreography which will help participants develop more freedom of movement, with a sense of grace, rhythm, and ease. All classes incorporate live music and is lead by professional dance instructors trained through the MARK MORRIS DANCE GROUP/DANCE FOR PD PROGRAM in Brooklyn, NY.  This class can accommodate those who walk independently, need a cane, or need a wheelchair. Caregivers are encouraged to participate.  While there is a suggested donation of $30 for the entire program, all are welcome.

On the third Wednesday of every month between 2–4 pm is a Parkinson’s Support Group.  The first hour is focused on educating and empowering patients, their families, and caregivers through talks about PD.  The second hour the group splits.  Patients can share and learn from one another in one private session while family members and caregivers can do the same in a nearby room.  Meetings are held in the NJ PURE Conference Rooms B and C at Capital Health Medical Center–Hopewell.  Register by calling 609-537-7157 or register online at capital health.org/events.  Complimentary valet parking is available at the main entrance, and refreshments are provided.
