Background: A recent systematic review of a wide variety of dance interventions for people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) has reported that dance may improve balance, endurance and reduce impairments in some people with PD. The Dance for Parkinson’s program, developed by the Mark Morris Dance Company NY, has been adopted by dance studios internationally, but little research has been undertaken to understand its effects, particularly from the perspective of the person with PD.
