Rising Stars: Special Needs Dance Program

The new Parkinson’s Dance Therapy program features dance classes structured around one of the greatest neurological concerns today- Parkinson’s disease. Classes are 30- 60 minutes each week, free of charge to participants. Each class will focus on the debilitating neurological symptoms of Parkinson’s, a decline in voluntary motor skills (balance, flexibility, strength), social skills, emotional strength, and confidence. With a teaching artist trained in Dance for Parkinson's Disease methods from Brooklyn, NY, ODT seeks to provide community members with Parkinson’s disease the physical, mental, and social benefits of dance.

ODT is continuing its Experience The Show: Bus & Ticket Program, offering transportation and attendance to ODT programming free of charge to participants. This program provides a unique dance education and experience to underserved community members including adults, persons with special needs, economically disadvantaged, and senior citizens.
