Dance for Parkinson's

Thursdays 2pm – 3.15pm


We are thrilled to be a host partner with English National Ballet to run weekly Dance for Parkinson's sessions at the Dance House.

Dance for Parkinson's brings a unique opportunity for people with Parkinson's in Cardiff, Newport and the surrounding areas to engage with high quality dance classes in the professional environment of the dance studio.

Based on English National Ballet’s contemporary and classical repertoire, Dance for Parkinson’s classes provide a fun and informal way for participants to discover the themes, choreography and music of the ballets.

This programme is proven to support people with Parkinson’s to develop confidence and strength, whilst temporarily relieving some participants of symptoms in everyday life. Classes are expressive, creative and promote feelings of freedom from the physical and social constraints of having Parkinson’s.

Refreshments are also provided in our lounge after the session for those that would like to stay.


 "What a wonderful session and interesting concept for all working, living and dealing with people with Parkinson's. I am so glad I was able to attend. It inspired me to feel I would like to pursue dance more with people living with this condition." -Participant, Parkinson's Specialist Nurse, Cardiff

"Enjoyed every week I’m sure it helps with everyday life, we go away feeling very happy." -Participant, Cardiff

Sessions are £3.50 each for both carers and participants, with no obligation to come every week.
