Workshop with David Leventhal
Monday, December 15th 6:30 - 8:00 pm
Community Action Hub at Gibney Dance 280 Broadway
What role can dance have in the lives of people with health challenges, particularly those with a movement disorder? David Leventhal, Program Director for the Mark Morris Dance Group's internationally-acclaimed Dance for PD® program, will explore the program’s originals and objectives, revealing lessons learned and best practices that are applicable to anyone working in the areas of dance, community engagement and health. The session will include discussion and dancing, and will make the case for the role that the arts—and dance in particular—play in helping people maintain a sense of human identity in the face of health challenges.
