Dance for PD leaders remind everyone in class that they should adapt anything in the class that seems too challenging. Caregivers and aides of persons with balance problems dance nearby to help if need be, by holding hands, bringing over a walker, helping someone to sit down. Dance leaders and their assistants in class get to know the students in their classes so that they can anticipate those who might need extra help with balance and offer help. Participants with balance problems who want to work at the barre may feel more comfortable dancing in-between two pieces of equipment so that they hold on to each barre with one hand. Or a chair might be the solution. Everyone pays attention to helping persons with balance problems do what they feel comfortable with, in a safe manner.
