The Sarasota Ballet is proud to offer Joyful Movement Through Parkinson’s in partnership with the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson's. In this interactive class, students will enjoy an exploration into the beautiful world of ballet through movement, creativity, and music. Each class will begin with a gentle warm-up and stretching of the body, followed by balletic movements that relate to actual ballets being performed by The Sarasota Ballet. Students will also discover the history of each ballet. Joyful Movement Through Parkinson’s is a wonderful chance to exercise and classes will help with range of motion, coordination, and mobility. Classes will be taught in rotation by Kate Honea, Principal Dancer and Assistant Ballet Mistress; Christopher Hird, Education Director; and Sarah Krazit, Education Faculty.
