Dancing With is a transdisciplinary project that bridges professional dancers, individuals living with Parkinson's Disease, and medical researchers. In 2021-2022, collaborators will hone methodologies developed in previous phases through a series of classes in Durham that apply creative tools for PD participants beyond the studio and in everyday settings while simultaneously deepening outreach efforts in rural Alamance County to address equity and accessibility among aging communities of color.
