Dancing is perhaps one of the most energetic and fufilling ways to create movement. It is good for both the body and the brain as it has the ability to team up with the powerful effects of music.
Sarah Robichaud is the founder of a Toronto based organization called “Dancing with Parkinsons.” She is a classically trained dancer who created this program when she became inspired by the Mark Morris Dance Group’s innovative PD dance program. The mission statement 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.”
Pre-pandemic, in-person classes were being held across the GTA. Because of having to suspend those classes due to social distancing, DWP offers a daily, free, online dance class for all seniors of every age, stage and ability!

Sarah’s energy is overflowing and contagious. Free dancing for seniors, how wonderful is that?!?
