April is Parkinson's awareness month and while we don't know what causes the disease or have a cure, we do know there are ways to help people manage the condition and improve their quality of life. For some, it begins with the right moves.
Our very talented lead instructor at Gotta Dance, Kirsten Barron-Kinney, took part in promoting healthy living habits through dance instruction; specifically balance restoration, range of motion and nerve regeration through movement.
Dance for Parkinson's started locally in 2008 and offers free classes at 7 different locations across Western Washington for people living with Parkinson's.
