As part of this training, participants will deepen the practice of dance for people living with Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Participants will discuss improvisation and somatic practices, share instructions to establish a workshop or an artistic project, and provide tools to manage delicate moments in the workshops. The programme includes a presentation by Dr Denis Obert on research in neurology and adapted physical activity practices, and an exchange with people living with the disease.
The training is a second step of the dance and Parkinson’s (DaPoPa and Dance Well) training offered in 2023, and will remain a training during which participants will share their own experiences, questions, reflections and difficulties related to this practice. The desire is to reveal the expertise and questions specific to each, and group them into common knowledge.
