Dancing with Parkinson’s Canada is now offering free on-line live dance classes through Zoom, seven days a week. Their mission is to keep seniors active, connected, and engaged while social-distancing.
WHO WE ARE
Dancing with Parkinson’s (DWP) aims to bring seniors with Parkinson's Disease out of isolation and into an artistic community where they can dance and connect with others. We provide a fun, safe environment where those with PD can celebrate the artistry and potential of their own movement.
Guided by this mission, DWP now offers interactive FREE DAILY classes to ALL seniors across the country on Zoom, while we navigate through social distancing.

Our mission at Dancing With Parkinson's is to provide dance classes and artistic experiences that enrich the lives of people with Parkinson’s Disease, and the lives of their families, friends, and caregivers.
Our vision is to provide safe, accessible, and inclusive environments where all people affected by Parkinson's Disease throughout Canada can explore the potential of their own movement and artistry while experiencing the social,emotional, cognitive and physical benefits of dancing to music in classes designed for them.
With your help we can continue to help seniors to stay active, healthy, and connected! Please consider making a donation today so that seniors across Canada can continue to dance for free everyday with us!
