Details: This introductory workshop is specially designed to help dance teachers adapt their expertise to work effectively and comfortably with the Parkinson's population under the guidelines and methodology of the Dance for PD program.  You'll cover special modules that focus on class structure, pedagogy and exercise design, and participate in a practicum class to develop class content and teaching techniques with founding teachers and other trainees, in addition to covering general modules about safety and working with Parkinson's participants.

Although this workshop is specifically geared toward dance teachers, a diverse group of individuals who may be interested in the workshop for Educational & Professional Enrichment (EPE) are welcome.  In this workshop, you will attend as Active Auditors, participating in all group discussions and modules, while observing the teaching practicum on Day 2.
