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.

Contact [email protected] or call 0151 7088810 to find out more and book a place.

Class Information

We offer classes for all ages and abilities in our studio, ranging from Beginner’s Ballet to Professional Commercial classes. All classes are suitable for adults aged 18+, unless otherwise stated.

Access

Our studio is at 24 Hope Street. Please press the buzzer for the studio or office to gain entrance. The studio is located on the ground floor, where you can also find an accessible toilet.

Registration

If you are new to a class, please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time in order to complete a short registration form. Information collected during registration is required for health and safety reasons only, and will not be shared externally.

What to Wear

Leggings and t-shirts or other comfortable clothes are perfect for most classes. Some classes recommend specific dance shoes, but otherwise bare feet is fine. Check with us in advance if you are unsure: 0151 708 8810.

Payments & Pricing

Class prices vary, and some are subsidised through our charitable funding. All classes are payable on the day in cash, unless otherwise stated - for example, a number of classes ask for payment for a full term in advance (specified on the listing). A number of classes are also available to book online in advance - a "book now" button will appear where this is the case.

For all classes run by MDI teachers (Beginners & Open Ballet, Beginners & Open Contemporary, Pro Class) you can purchase a 10 Class Card, which can be used across any combination of these classes. Please note that all 10 classes must be taken within one year of purchase, and cannot be used for MDI summer courses.

Term Dates

Our classes follow the academic year, with a reduced timetable during half-term or other holidays for Liverpool schools, and will be highlighted as such. To check school holiday dates, please visit liverpool.gov.uk
