This transdisciplinary project bridges professional dancers, people with Parkinson's Disease, and medical researchers. In the project's third phase, collaborators will expand workshops to reach communities in Durham and rural Alamance County, narrow their focus to evaluate beneficial outcomes of creative movement on Parkinson's disease, and develop a pilot toolkit of medically-informed recommendations to be widely distributed to arts and non-arts sectors working with the PD community.
