Dancing Helps Parkinson’s Patients (video)


Mood and movement is enhanced!

Madeline Frank’s monthly musical newsletter featured an article by Janet Tu, in the Seattle Times citing ways dancing helps Parkinson’s patients. A video shows the Dance for Parkinson’s Project in Seattle sponsored by Evergreen Hospital. Body-brain networks are exercised and improved. Joy, creative expression and socializing resulting from the dance class is an “antidote to the depression and isolation that can come with Parkinson’s.”
