Dance for Parkinson’s

Thursdays | 1:30pm - 3:30pm | £4

A gentle and safe way to experience dance, we welcome carers, friends and family members to share the experience.
Based on English National Ballet’s contemporary and classical repertoire, Dance for Parkinson’s classes provide a fun and informal way for participants to discover the themes, choreography and music of the ballet, with special opportunities to attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events and see the Company perform.

This programme is proven to support people with Parkinson’s to develop confidence and strength, whilst temporarily relieving some participants of symptoms in everyday life. Classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of having Parkinson’s.

No dance or ballet experience required. Classes are £4 per person and we ask that the full course (10 weeks) is paid for in advance. If you are not able to do this but still want to attend, please get in touch so we can find a solution. Our Summer term is 10 weeks and runs from 11 April 2019.

What to Wear

For most classes, leggings and t-shirts or other comfortable clothes are perfect to move in, unless otherwise stated. Some classes recommend specific dance shoes, but in most cases bare feet is fine. Check with us in advance if you’d like to make sure: 0151 708 8810.

Payments & Pricing

Class prices vary depending on who is delivering the class, and some classes are subsidised. You can pay for all classes on the day in cash, unless otherwise stated.

For some classes, payment for the term must be made in advance, and this is specified on the listing. Call us on 0151 708 8810 if you’re not sure.

For all classes run by MDI (those with our name in the title), you can purchase a 10 Class Card, which can be used on any timetabled MDI class. All 10 classes must be taken within one year of purchase, and cards cannot be used for MDI summer courses or classes taught by external companies / teachers.

Term Dates

Our classes follow the usual academic year, so there are no classes during half-term or other holidays for Liverpool schools. To check school holiday dates, please visit liverpool.gov.uk
