Are you interested in Set-Dancing classes?

Coming off the huge success of the Feakle Health Conference and based on the evidence of the therapeutic effects of Irish set-dancing on Parkinson’s Disease, Move4Parkinson’s are planning to start running set-dancing classes designed for People with Parkinson’s.

Dr. Daniele Volpe’s initial trials suggest that “the dance group showed superior results to standard physiotherapy in relation to freezing of gait, balance and motor disability”.

These intial findings are very encouraging. Coupled with the fact that we all tend to stick to physical activities that are engaging, enjoyable and sociable, such as dancing, more so that activities that feel like we “have to” do them, has made us all very excited at the prospect of Move4Parkinson’s Set-Dancing Classes!

As part of the process of planning these classes we’d like to get a rough idea of the level of interest in these classes.

To begin with we will be running them in Dublin, somewhere close enough to the M50.
