SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY SEP 14, 2019

The Sarasota Ballet and Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's are partnering to provide “Dancing Through Parkinson's", a dance-movement program for people with Parkinson’s and their care partners. Parkinson’s is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease with no known cure. According to Robyn Faucy-Washington, Chief Executive Officer of the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's, “Numerous studies show that dance helps improve mobility, balance, and gait by addressing the motor symptoms of PD which include resting tremors, slowness of movement, and difficulties with balance as well as non-motor symptoms such as anxiety, pain, and sleep disorders”.
