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 ballets.

Participants also have the special opportunity 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.

"Dancing like this is helping me to get Mr Parkinson's out of the driving seat of my life."

"The ballet did make me urgently want to move more, and move better and hinted at how this might be possible."
