Providing dance classes and artistic experiences that enrich the lives of people with Parkinson's Disease
WHO WE ARE
Dancing with Parkinson’s (DWP) is a registered charity that 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 has been providing interactive FREE DAILY classes to ALL seniors across the country on Zoom.

DWP MISSION & VISION
DAILY ONLINE CLASS
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.
THE HEALING POWER OF DANCE
Dancing with Parkinson's dance classes are specifically designed for people living with Parkinson's disease and taught by instructors trained in the Dance for PD Method.
The efficacy and benefits of our programming are evidence-based and proven to provide cognitive, physical and emotional benefits for those who participate.
Through movement and music, we encourage our dancers to explore their inner artist in an accessible way while they connect with others in our dance family!
All levels and abilities are welcome. No experience necessary. To learn more about our free daily programming, both online and in-person, please visit current classes.
