The number of programs that offer dance for people with Parkinson’s disease has been increasing worldwide for the past 15 years. Dance is credited with reducing the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and thus increasing quality of life. This workshop offers an introduction into aspects of Parkinson’s disease and its specific symptoms, communicates different approaches to dance-specific offerings as well as methods of developing your own instruction units. The foundation for this workshop was created in a three-year research project at Theater Freiburg in cooperation with professional dancers, researchers and people who were suffering from Parkinson’s disease.

Monica Gillette is a dancer and choreographer. Most recently, she primarily concentrated on the development of participatory, interdisciplinary research projects. Her interest lies on the question of what role dance-specific knowledge can play in a trans-disciplinary social context.
