Minding Motion for Graceful Aging™ strives to enliven the individual through a participatory form of symptomatic therapy in a safe and positively resonant social environment. The experiences we provide are methodically designed to broaden and transform the horizon of possibilities in their everyday life. It is our goal to keep our older adult population intellectually, physically, creatively and emotionally healthy. Our goals are to guide individuals of all functioning levels especially those living with Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Dementia and Memory Loss in the (re) discovery of a more able vehicle and to invoke imagery in the service of a more graceful functioning body thus ultimately instilling confidence and well-being. Minding Motion for Graceful Aging™ is Directed by Juan Carlos Claudio, John Allen and Damon Georgelas.

 

            Prefaced in the inherent capacities that DANCE as an art form posses such as sensory awareness, physical ability, and thought processes, this program addresses ideas of empowerment by instilling greater confidence, self-worth and creativity amongst select populations. As a team of practitioners, we bring our love, dedication and commitment in support of research and artistic expression to those living with non-motor and motor challenges.
