Mission statement: To transform Parkinson’s patients into dance students through Popping dance styles with the ultimate aim of improving their emotional and physical quality of life.
The key concept of the classes is to use popping dance techniques as an innovative therapeutic tool for improving the physical condition of people affected by Parkinson’s disease.
It is the first time that popping has been used as a tool for medical purposes and the feedback until now has been very positive. Participants not only see improvement in their natural movement capacities, but also gain confidence, feel less socially isolated and have fun.
