Free dance classes for people with Parkinsons disease

Free dance classes for people with Parkinsons disease

A dance class for people with Parkinsons offers a way to empower the patients while they explore movement and music in ways that are stimulating, refreshing, and creative.

The classes are taught by Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre's ballet mistress, Susan Perlis, who was inspired by her husband who has Parkinsons.

Perlis received specialized training to teach movement to the Parkinsons community. She says she is thrilled to offer this free service to anyone who wants to benefit from this "moving" class.
