Dance for PD®
Feb 5 @ 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Bowen McCauley Dance presents a weekly free Dance for PD® class for people with Parkinson Disease and their care-partners. All Are Welcome!

If you have questions, please call us at (703) 910-5175 or by email at dance@bmdc.org

Bowen McCauley Dance is the only dance company in the Metropolitan-DC area to provide Dance for PD-free weekly dance classes for people with Parkinson Disease and their care-partners. Lucy Bowen McCauley, BMD’s Artistic Director and founder, is honored to bring dance to people with this disease. Besides the health benefits, dance takes the mind and spirit away from the thoughts of disease, the disability and social isolation.

“When I am in class my old body has left me and a new body has set in. It’s like a wind has washed all the evil of the disease out of my system.”

 

Dance for PD® originated with the Brooklyn (N.Y.) Parkinson Group and the Mark Morris Dance Group. At the invitation of MMDG and PFNCA, McCauley received training and certification in March 2008 to teach these fun and innovative classes.
