The Dancing Through Parkinson’s classes offered byInvertigoDanceTheatreare based on the principles of the Dance for PD classes developed by the highly respected Mark Morris Dance Group, a dance company based in New York, NY. They are designed to enhance the mental and physical well-being of people who have the movement disorder of Parkinson’s disease. You can learn more about the program onInvertigoDanceTheatre’sDancing Through Parkinson’s page.

If you’re looking for dance classes designed for people with Parkinson’s disease for yourself or a loved one on the East Side, Lineage Dance Company, a nonprofit contemporary dance company, offers Dancing with Parkinson’s classes that are also directly based on the work of the Mark Morris Dance Group.
Lineage Dance’s classes are offered at Lineage Performing Arts Center, on Fair Oaks Ave in the heart of Pasadena’s Old Town. Lineage has also offered classes at Pasadena’s Huntington Hospital.
