Many persons with PD come by themselves. However, you are invited to ask a spouse/partner, friend or family member to participate in class with you if you feel that would make your experience more enjoyable. Often, participants in the class help one another, holding hands, for instance, while dancing across the floor. Many Dance for PD® classes also engage volunteers and assistants from the community to provide extra hands and eyes. In a Dance for PD® class, everyone is attentive and everyone helps to the extent they can. The connections made between and among persons in a Dance for PD® class is often noted as one of many reasons persons like the classes and gain a positive feeling from them.
