     Integrating the arts into medicine takes many shapes: dancing is a great way to exercise, combining as it does music and bodily movement; dancing has become part of the therapy for the treatment of many problems. One of the more recent uses of dance as therapy is with people with Parkinson’s disease and their families.

     The Dance for Parkinson’s Disease Program was created in 2001 at the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York City. Recently the program became involved with the Dallas Museum of Art in conjunction with its exhibition of Jackson Pollock’s work. This post from Theater Jones offers an introduction of Dance for Parkinson’s Disease’s work and its introduction to the Dallas area.
