The class advances to standing for those who feel comfortable. For those not comfortable or able to stand, seated modification for each exercise is provided.

    The class follows the Dance for PD model, which was founded in Brooklyn in collaboration between the Brooklyn Parkinson's Group and the Mark Morris Dance Group.
