“There’s no better way to take care of health than through something as joyous and beautiful as dance.”
– Patrick Swayze
Hello fans of this organization! We thank you tremendously for your continued support! Our virtual event Broadway Voices for Parkinson’s in February of 2020 raised over $16,000! We could not have done this without your support. We donated a portion to research via The Michael J. Fox Foundation and are thrilled to announce our sponsorship of the largest and only Dance For Parkinson’s Program in Long Island. We sponsor dance classes at the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts throughout the year. These classes are open to people with all stages of Parkinson’s disease and their caregivers. Studies have shown that dance develops balance, increases cognitive activity, increases social connections and creates joy in the lives of people living with PD.

A WORD FROM THE FOUNDER
It has been about 14 years since I was diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s disease. At the time of diagnosis, I was a podiatrist and mother of two small children. Now I am a retired podiatrist and a mother of an 18 and 21 year old. Time flies!! PD usually stands for Parkinson’s Disease but I say it stands for perseverance and determination. This is my motto. I try on a daily basis to enjoy each day and live in the moment. This year has been my most challenging year yet. I am hopeful that research will continue to find better treatments for this disease. In the meantime, I owe my life to my friends, family and the dance teachers who continue to keep me moving.
