The Moving Company to Sponsor Dance Classes for Adults With Parkinson's
Omaha - Starting Jan. 13, The Moving Company, the modern dance performing group at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO), will host “Reach for It,” a 10-week dance program for adults living with Parkinson’s disease.
The program, which runs through March 16, features hour-long dance classes held Fridays from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center, located at 333 S. 132nd St. in Omaha.
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.
Cost for the 10-week program is $50, which is due at the time of the first class on Jan. 13. Interested participants can register by calling The Moving Company at (402) 554.2670.
The classes will be taught by Danielle Laurion, a recent graduate of the dance/movement therapy and counseling master’s program at Columbia College Chicago and Roxanne Nielsen, a choreographer, instructor and executive director of The ARTery/Dancing Classrooms Omaha.
The Moving Company at UNO/School of HPER, the Nebraska Chapter of the American Parkinson Disease Association and Jewish Community Center Omaha are the program sponsors.
