Dance helps those in Lincoln battling Parkinson's

By  | 

By the year 2020, nearly one million people will be living with Disease in the U.S and here in the capital city, one woman is using the power of dance to help people fight the disease.

It's called Dance for Parkinson's. It was brought to Lincoln in the Spring of 2014 and was officially launched in the Fall.

It's part of a program across the country to help Parkinson's patients regain grace, confidence and meaning in their lives. Music plays a critical role in the dance training.

Ruth Davidson Hahn & Company puts on the class at the Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School. Ruth says, in many cases, it allows participants to achieve mobility that they may not have been able to have by normal ways.

The next session will be the holiday session on December 12th and 19th. You can find more info at www.rdhdance.org
