Wanna dance with us in arts spaces?
Dance Well Class, an artistic experience that came from Italy and spread to other cities, finally gets started in Hong Kong now. Our classes are open to all: people living with or without Parkinson’s disease of all ages, along with their families, loved ones and carers. You can explore your body and soul in a creative way with our dance teachers, in artistic spaces like galleries, museums and performance venues.
We will conduct a two-year research study simultaneously. By collecting participants' data before and after the Dance Well classes mainly through physical fitness tests and questionnaires, the research aims to examine the effects of dance among Parkinson’s disease patients on their physical, psychological and social health. The subject of this research study is people with Parkinson's, and the identities of the participants will be kept anonymous and confidential. Participation in the research is voluntary and participants can terminate their participation at any time. The information collected in this research will be used for academic purposes only, and the identities of the participants will not be disclosed in the research articles. Upon completion of the research study, participants will receive a brief report and a HK$500 supermarket voucher. Please click here to learn more about the research study.
Organised by the School of Dance at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the three-year creative movement project is designed for people with Parkinson's disease but open to all.
Through a series of keynote speeches, forum discussions and showcases, the need and relevance of Dance Well for people with Parkinson’s disease will be demonstrated to the public and stakeholders from the arts and social medical sectors.
More information is coming soon. Stay tuned!
