This class is appropriate for anyone who loves music and desires to explore the healing powers of, and joy within, movement regardless of whether they are living with mobility challenges or not. We have had individuals with Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis join us and fully participate in movement with us. No dance experience is necessary.
The moves explored can be done sitting as well as standing. These classes serve to provide an environment and opportunity for all to enjoy the energizing, enriching and empowering benefits of dance and music in a welcoming community setting.
Facilitator Jennifer Speiden will bring elements of contemporary, social and world dances into the class as well as integrate her extensive movement knowledge and experience as a physical therapist, registered yoga teacher, Pilates instructor and professional dance performer and educator.
RSVP: For more information, or to reserve a spot in the class, please contact Jennifer Speiden at (540) 552-2596 or email@example.com
