A NEW weekly dance class is starting in Tadley to provide support and enrichment for people living with Parkinson's. 

Dance teacher Penny Bryett, who has 27 years of experience in teaching dance to both children and adults, will be at the helm of the initiative that begins after Easter at Heath End Hall in Tadley.

Having recently completed specialised advanced training with David Leventhal, the director of Dance for PD, along with members of The Mark Morris Dance Group in Brooklyn, Penny is well-equipped to cater to the specific needs of the Parkinson's community.

The class, which will begin on April 18, aims to introduce participants to the benefits that dance can offer individuals grappling with Parkinson's disease.

Since September, Penny has been spearheading Dance for Parkinson's classes in Winchester, and she is thrilled to extend her reach to Tadley.

She said the sessions will provide a safe and positive environment for participants to explore different dance genres.

Carefully curated pieces of music will accommodate varying abilities, with a focus on improving posture, mobility, balance, and coordination.

Beyond physical enhancements, the class also presents an opportunity for socialising and making new connections.

Penny added that no prior dance experience is necessary to participate, making the class accessible to individuals of all backgrounds and abilities within the Parkinson's community.
