Ballet Academy East is proud to announce the addition of a dance class called Dance for PD® for people with Parkinson’s this fall on Fridays from 11:00-12:15pm at Ballet Academy East, 1651 Third Avenue, NYC. Dance for PD classes, developed collaboratively by Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson Group, are currently offered at Mark Morris Dance Center, The Juilliard School, and at several locations in The Bronx and Queens. The class at Ballet Academy East represents the program’s first East Side location and provides access for an area of Manhattan previously underserved by this kind of resource.
“Ballet Academy East is honored to collaborate with Dance for PD in bringing the joy and physical benefits of dance to people with Parkinson’s disease. Our goal is for every participant to leave class feeling uplifted and inspired by their abilities,” said Julia Dubno, founder and director of Ballet Academy East.
