Director: Heather Oberheim
Participants will enjoy moving to music especially selected to help with balance, flexibility, regulation of walking gait, and daily joy! No dance or musical experience is necessary to participate; walkers, canes, and wheelchairs are welcome, as are family members, friends, and caregivers of those experiencing Parkinson’s or other motor system disorders. Oberheim will use her experience and training in neurologic dance movement therapy to guide exercises that warm up the joints and the body, accompanied by fun music and using colorful scarves that enhance the flow of the movement and use fine motor and gross motor skills. “This is a fun and interactive class with plenty of laughing and individual attention to meet the needs of changing bodies,” said Oberheim. “We’ll play a lot of favorite songs, make some new friends, and come out smiling – the focus is on physical wellness, but the benefits are emotional and social, too.”
