    - The Dancing for Parkinson’s program offers free weekly dance classes to individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. Individuals with Parkinson's are encouraged to remain active. The class is designed to encourage and develop coordination, musicality, spatial awareness, creativity and technique. The dance class facilitates cognitive stimulation and social interaction, while also focusing on stability and gait.

    The class begins seated and participants are guided through a progressive warm-up and a series of sequences that encompass the principals and qualities of dance. 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. David Tamaki is the instructor for the program and is trained in the Dance for PD method and is a recipient of the Stanley J. Wertheimer Fellowship Program, which provides continued development and mentorship to qualified instructors.

  • - The 2016 Republican National Convention will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The RNC chose a 2016 convention date much earlier than in recent elections, allowing the Republican nominee to draw upon campaign cash designated to be spent only in the general election.

    Ohio has been a battleground swing-state throughout United States campaigning history. The last candidate to win the presidential election without Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960. The last Republican presidential candidate to win the election without Ohio was Abraham Lincoln, 100 years earlier, in 1860. Cleveland last hosted the Republican National Convention in 1936.

    The main 2016 Republican National Convention venue will be the Quicken Loans Arena. This main convention center is located in downtown Cleveland, and referred to locally as "The Q". The multipurpose arena seats 20,500, and includes 2,000 club seats and 88 luxury suites. It is home to three professional sports teams and hosts numerous entertainment events. Other supporting venues within walking distance of 2016 RNC main venue include the Cleveland Convention Center and the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

    Other cities that were considered to host the 2016 Republican National Convention included Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014. Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew on May 22, 2014. On June 25, 2014, the Republican National Committee announced that the cities of Cleveland and Dallas would continue to the final round of consideration to host the 2016 Convention. The recommendation to select 'Cleveland 2016' was made following a final review by the Republicans' site selection committee on July 8, 2014.

    - The Dancing for Parkinson’s program offers free weekly dance classes to individuals with Parkinson’s disease and their care partners. Individuals with Parkinson's are encouraged to remain active. The class is designed to encourage and develop coordination, musicality, spatial awareness, creativity and technique. The dance class facilitates cognitive stimulation and social interaction, while also focusing on stability and gait.

    The class begins seated and participants are guided through a progressive warm-up and a series of sequences that encompass the principals and qualities of dance. 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. David Tamaki is the instructor for the program and is trained in the Dance for PD method and is a recipient of the Stanley J.

  • - The 2016 Republican National Convention will convene in Cleveland, Ohio on July 18-21, 2016. The RNC chose a 2016 convention date much earlier than in recent elections, allowing the Republican nominee to draw upon campaign cash designated to be spent only in the general election.

    Ohio has been a battleground swing-state throughout United States campaigning history. The last candidate to win the presidential election without Ohio was Democrat John F. Kennedy in 1960. The last Republican presidential candidate to win the election without Ohio was Abraham Lincoln, 100 years earlier, in 1860. Cleveland last hosted the Republican National Convention in 1936.

    The main 2016 Republican National Convention venue will be the Quicken Loans Arena. This main convention center is located in downtown Cleveland, and referred to locally as "The Q". The multipurpose arena seats 20,500, and includes 2,000 club seats and 88 luxury suites. It is home to three professional sports teams and hosts numerous entertainment events. Other supporting venues within walking distance of 2016 RNC main venue include the Cleveland Convention Center and the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel.

    Other cities that were considered to host the 2016 Republican National Convention included Cincinnati, Columbus, Denver, Kansas City, Las Vegas and Phoenix. Columbus and Phoenix were eliminated on April 2, 2014. Cincinnati and Las Vegas withdrew on May 22, 2014.
