The PEACE Project

The PEACE Project offers opportunities to dancers with PD to perform with our inter-generational ensemble. Currently we are exploring the role of alphasynucleans, misfolding proteins and their impact on Parkinson’s disease. Through our work with people living with Parkinson’s disease, we hope to partner with doctors and scientists to find a cure. We want to encourage the medical profession to listen to their patient’s stories. People with Parkinson’s disease can share important information that can influence the medical community treats people with PD. In addition, Claudine Naganuma directs the Dance for PD® program at Danspace. Classes are held on Thursday mornings from 10:30 to 11:45am. Check our Danspace website for more information.1001030_10152094178614097_1663024792_n
