Dancing away the Parkinson's blues
"The Morris dancers began offering dance classes to patients in New York nine years ago. The idea was to use dance instructors and live music to help people focus on movement and rhythm.
Now, the dancers travel across the country, offering classes and training workshops."

Thanks for the link, innopac (and for pulling up this old material). What a nice idea. I understand dance therapy has been of benefit to Parkinson's sufferers.

I understand dance therapy has been of benefit to Parkinson's sufferers.
It is, and the Morris program has been training group leaders in several locations.
