The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) presented, on November 16th, the Jockey Club Dance Well Project – Annual Sharing 2023 at the Main Campus of the Academy in Wanchai. A significant moment of the Jockey Club Dance Well Project, a three-year creative dance programme funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, that welcomed the Dance Well  practice.

The Jockey Club Dance Well Project Annual Sharing 2023 is a platform for mutual exchange and learning and for gaining further insights into the use of the arts to enhance the lives of individuals with Parkinson's: the event focused on collaboration and experience sharing, featuring discussions between professionals in the arts, social welfare, and medical fields. Including a presentation by Roberto Casarotto, project manager for the Dance Well European project and Dance Well initiator. 
The event also showcased the incredible progress achieved by the Project participants, who have experienced psychological and physical empowerment, and formed a resilient and supportive community, fostering solidarity and personal growth through the Project. Attendees had the opportunity to engage in discussions that bridge the gap between arts, social welfare, and healthcare, ultimately shaping a brighter future where dance serves as a catalyst for positive change in the lives of those with Parkinson's disease.

We believe in the transformative power of dance, and the Jockey Club Dance Well Project Annual Sharing allows us to celebrate the progress and achievements of our participants," said Anna CY Chan, Project Director of the Jockey Club Dance Well Project and Dean of Dance, HKAPA.
