Event description
Applying inclusive dance practice to dance for Parkinson’s

About this event

In this online session, Louise Marshall will lead practical activities inspired by her experience of working with diverse groups. The session will illustrate how the same approaches Louise uses for Inclusive Dance can be applied to Dance for Parkinson’s and may offer the opportunity for reflection and extension to familiar practice.

Participants will be invited to discuss how class content can be devised and communicated to be fully inclusive and will be invited to create and share a short activity with the group.

Please note: If you book onto this event and then can no longer attend, we ask that you let us know so we can release the place to someone else as our events sell out and we run waiting lists.
