Dance for Parkinson’s

/, Older People/Dance for Parkinson’s

Get creative, feel energised, meet new people — all whilst having fun!

Wednesday afternoons from 2 – 3.15pm at Garforth Squash & Leisure Centre, Ninelands Lane, Leeds LS25 1NX 

Cost: £6.50 per pair

Living with Parkinson’s and want to improve your balance, flexibility and strength? Northern Ballet’s new dance classes provide an exciting opportunity to work with our expert teachers, and dance to live music.

Each week we’ll cover basic technique to improve your posture, core strength and coordination. You’ll then have the chance to learn some steps from some of our best known productions like The Nutcracker and Romeo & Juliet. You can even have a go at creating your own moves!

No previous dance experience is required, but we ask that you bring a partner, friend or carer to support you and join in the fun. After dancing together, we’ll have a cuppa and a biscuit at the end of each session.

For more information and to register, please contact Nicola Phillips on 0113 220 8000 or email
