The graduate occupational therapy students from Eastern Washington State University who have been researching the experience of participants in the Dance for PD class gave their presentation at the Riverpoint campus today. The participants with PD reported improvements in their ability to move freely as well as increased feelings of self-esteem.
Overall they just felt better after each class and the effects lasted for some time between classes. The only request from participants is that we make the classes weekly rather than twice a month.
We’re looking for funding to make this happen, so if you want to help you can start by clicking on that Donate button and making a note that your donation is restricted to Dance for Parkinson’s.
Two other graduate students will follow up the research this fall when Dance for Parkinson’s resumes in September. We’ll also post the report from EWU on this site just as soon as we get it.
