In these worshops, which last 1 hour and 15 mins, participants are empowered to explore movement and music in ways that are refreshing, enjoyable, stimulating and creative. The tempo and content is tailored for this specific purpose. You are very welcome to bring a companion who also can participate in the workshop.

About Skånes Dansteater's Dance for PD project

Skånes Dansteater has since January 2016, in collaboration with Mark Morris Dance Company, offered Dance for PD workshops, for persons with Parkinsons disease. The workshops originated from an initiative from Skånes Dansteater's dancers Patrick Bragdell Eriksson and Laura Lohi.

The project began with an invitation to David Levinthal, dancer from Mark Morris Dance Group in New York, to come to Malmö. He trained our company dancers in how to teach dance for Parkinsons workshops. Since the initial training in spring 2016 we have been giving dance for Parkinsons workshops twice per month with a steady increase in the number of participants.
