dNaga now offers Dance for PD® classes at Danspace. An extension of our Dance for PD® program, The PEACE Project offers opportunities to dancers with PD to perform with our intergenerational ensemble. Our project members are currently exploring the role of alpha synuclein, misfolding proteins and their impact on Parkinson’s disease. Through our work with people living with Parkinson’s disease, we hope to partner with doctors and scientists to find a cure. We want to encourage the medical profession to listen to the stories of people who are living with Parkinson’s disease, who can share important information with the medical community.
Many of our dNaga company members were trained at Danspace, and have been working with dNaga’s PEACE Project since they were students. If you are a Danspace student, and are interested in applying for a dance internship with the PEACE Project, please send us an email to email@example.com with your name, age, and why you want to participate. As an intern, you’d attend our Saturday Dance for PD Class, learn how to work with elder dancers, and have an opportunity to perform.
