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. –hyperlink
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. –hyperlink
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.

Practicing at Home
Please make sure you have plenty of space to practice safely and comfortably. Take a rest or a water break any time you need one. If you are practicing yoga or pilates please back out of any postures that bring you pain or discomfort, take a rest and come back to the class when you are ready. Your teacher will give you any additional instructions or advice at the start of your Zoom.
We have new processes and measures in place to keep you safe. Please read our Studio Guidelines before booking.
We're based at 24 Hope Street, with Studio 1 on the Ground Floor, and Studio 2 on the first floor. There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor.
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.
Payments & Pricing
Studio classes are run by MDI and some are subsidised through our charitable funding.
Some classes run right through term breaks, others take time out. Please check the website to find out when your class is running.
