“Dear Ruth and team, I watch Paul’s back straighten, his posture improve, as he dances with you in your Zoom classes. He is mentally engaged, and so motivated to participate in your class. Thank you so much for working on flexibility, movement, musicality, expression, and voice. Getting out of the chair has become very difficult for him and your ascending and descending from the chair dances have helped him with this task as his Parkinson’s battle continues. We both look forward to the engagement and interaction, and mental as well as physical involvement. Again, thank you so much for this opportunity to dance with you on Zoom!” Paul and Carol Glancy, Dance for Parkinson’s Participants
