Pledge to Take Action

People dance every day for all different reasons. Some dance to work out, and some dance to be part of a community. Jack, who participates in a dance class for people with Parkinson’s, finds happiness in moving his body and doing it in a group while wearing his “crazy socks.” Dancing Through Parkinson’s is building confidence, community, and well-being through dance therapy.
