Reach For It, a free program of dance for elders and persons with Parkinson’s offered by The Moving Company, is now offering in-person classes during the Fall 2023 Semester. Class begins September 8 and meets Fridays at 9:30am through November 17. There will be no class on October 20.
Participants will exercise and have fun using the fluidity of dance to work on balance, strength, movement, and coordination. This class will integrate multiple styles of dance and live music to engage the mind and body. Reach for It combines the easy-going interaction of a group with movement tailored to the individual participant's level of mobility. Support is provided through collaboration between UNO's The Moving Company and the UNO chapter of the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (UNO NSSLHA). Family, friends, and caregivers are encouraged to accompany participants in movements.
