Eight-Week Dance Program for Persons with Parkinson’s Begins Jan. 24
Omaha - The Moving Company, the modern dance performing group at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, will host “Reach for It,” a dance program for adults living with Parkinson’s disease.
Hour-long dance classes will be held Mondays from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the Thompson Alumni Center on the UNO campus. The first session runs Jan. 24 through March 14.
The cost is $40 for eight classes. Free parking will be available on the UNO campus.
Program participants will dance and socialize while working on balance, strength, flexibility and coordination, said Josie Metal-Corbin of The Moving Company. The classes integrate multiple styles of dance to engage the mind and body, including dance while seated in chairs.
The eight classes will be taught by Josie Metal-Corbin, The Moving Company; Danielle Laurion, a recent graduate of the dance/movement therapy and counseling master’s program at Columbia College Chicago; and Taffy Howard, a longtime performing and teacher with the Omaha Modern Dance Collective.
For more information or to register, contact Taffy Howard: firstname.lastname@example.org or (402) 551-7473.
The program is sponsored by The Moving Company at UNO; the Omaha Modern Dance Collective; Premier Physical Therapy; the Nebraska Arts Council; Nebraska Cultural Endowment; and the American Parkinson Disease Association.
