Dance with Life

STG’s Dance with Life in-person classes are on hold right now due to COVID-19. We will begin again once it is safe to do so.

We do offer Dance for PD® classes digitally on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Dance with Life dance classes are completely seated and are offered in assisted living facilities and nursing homes. Using dance, imagery, narrative and community, students develop artistry and grace, while improving balance and confidence, enhanced cognitive performance, and increased physical strength and control.

The classes inspire students of all abilities and mobilities to experience the grace, joy, creative expression and self-confidence dance brings to those who participate. Students are invited to investigate movement and music in ways that stimulate their mind and body artistically, intellectually, physically and rhythmically.

Using live accompaniment, professional dancers who are accomplished and passionate teaching artists, bring a high caliber of skill to each class. Classes are one hour. No dance experience is required.
