April 5 | 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Welcome to Movement as Medicine! This free class is designed for those diagnosed with a neurological diagnosis such as Parkinson’s, ALS, MS, dementia, and many more. Those caring for a loved one with these diagnoses are also welcome to join class for some self-care! Each class incorporates dance and creative movement to address balance, flexibility and spatial awareness. Led by Dr. Suzanne Salapa, Chair of the Valencia College, School of Arts & Entertainment, Department of Dance, explores motion in ways that are stimulating and enjoyable. Dr. Salapa has been formally trained by the internationally acclaimed Dance for PD® Program, created and sustained by the Mark Morris Dance Center, Brooklyn, New York.  This class focuses on stretching and strengthening muscles, coordination, balance and rhythm. Over the years, our Movement as Medicine Performers (not required for class participation) have often been requested to perform multiple times a year in and around our community. Movers and dancers of all levels are welcome. We offer this class once a month in person and once a month virtual. Please join us! Email request to [email protected]
