Waltz With Parkinson's


The Beat

presents a new & unique dance class for people with Parkinson's and other neurological conditions. This weekly class is specifically designed for PWP and their partners to learn the art of dance while offering therapeutic relief from many common physical and emotional symptoms of Parkinson’s. The waltz's fluid movement, rhythmical music, and varying patterns will exercise a dancer's mind, improve posture, can increase muscle range, and releases that feel-good dopamine which reduces rigidity and improves fluidity, coordination and balance. Learning a new skill while socializing has proven to slow, and some say, stop the progression of Parkinson's.

Do I need a partner?

No partner is necessary for private dance lessons. Your instructor will partner you for your private lessons.

What if I have never danced before?

That is absolutely okay! Private dance lessons are a great way to get started. They allow you to work one-on-one with an instructor to move at your pace, with your learning style, and focus on your personal goals.

What if I have danced before?

That’s awesome! We pair you with an instructor that will help you reach your goals at times and dates that are convenient for you.

What do I wear to class?

When it comes to ballroom classes, it is nice to dress it up a little bit with business casual, but you will want to wear what you feel most comfortable moving in. Dance shoes are ideal however, any hard sole shoe will work. We always recommend bringing a change of shoe for the safety of all of the dancers on the floor and to protect the dance floor itself. You can find dance attire here!

How long will it take me to get good?

Our job is to always help you reach your goals as fast as possible and have fun! We like to say the timeline for learning to dance is similar to the time it took to learn the skills within your current career. After the first day on the job you probably knew where the bathroom was and who your superiors were; that was only eight hours. After a 40 hour work week you felt more comfortable and could perform your tasks without supervision. How long did it take for you to become truly proficient….how long for your first promotion…etc.
