Making the Turn has partnered with HappenDance School in Okemos, Michigan to offer the first of its kind class in the greater Lansing area.  This ten-week program provides an opportunity for those living with Parkinson's disease to keep their bodies moving through dance.

Let’s ParkinDance
Come join a movement class that rocks, rolls, swings, boogie-woogies and gives you a workout by dancing to music! Starting with easy exercises while sitting and progressing to moving on our feet (optional), everyone is welcome to join in the fun of moving to rhythm.
 
Where
Happendance School, 3448 Hagadorn Road, Okemos. This is the red barn-like building at the corner of Jolly and Hagadorn. Entrance is on the east side of building where the elevator is located.

 
When
Wednesdays from 1:00-1:45pm starting May 9, 2018 and running for 10 weeks.

 
Attire
Clothes in which you can comfortably bend and stretch.

 
Shoes
Athletic shoes, soft-soled shoes, or ballet slippers. Please no hard-soled shoes or heels as they can destroy the special dance floor.

 
Cost
Participation is FREE thanks to a subsidy from Making the Turn!
Please support this new program by attending a class.  With sufficient support, a second 10-week program will be offered later this year.
