Managing Parkinson’s with the Mind of a Dancer

David Leventhal Presentation Dance for PD

David Leventhal is a founding teacher and Program Director for Dance for PD®, a collaborative program of the Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group that has now been used as a model for classes in more than 300 communities in 25 countries. He leads classes for people with Parkinson’s around the world and trains other teachers in the Dance for PD approach, and serves as a Davis Phinney Foundation Board Member. In this Living Well Challenge™ webisode, Leventhal discusses the benefits of Managing Parkinson’s with the Mind of a Dancer and invites viewers to experience the liberation and attitude shift that coincides with shedding the label “Person with Parkinson’s” and adopting the new identity of “dancer.” He further details how thinking and moving like a dancer logically applies to many aspects of living with Parkinson’s.
