We utilize the power of dance, music, and creativity to improve mobility and quality of life for people with our outreach programs Dance for Parkinson’s, offered to people with Parkinson’s disease, their caregivers, spouses and partners, and Contemporary Dance for the Ageless and Unstoppable, for older adults in Senior Centers, Retirement Living, and Assisted Living Communities.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We cannot do all the good we are doing helping people with Parkinson’s disease and ageless and unstoppable adults move and be uplifted without your gifts, your generosity, and your support. It is with your help that we can make a difference.
