Dance for Parkinson's Pilot Research Report
In 2013, Queensland Ballet (QB) launched a pilot program offering specialized dance classes to people with Parkinson's Disease (PD), based on the internationally recognised Dance for PD program. A mixed-methods research project was undertaken involving 11 participants who were tested at pre, during, and post-program time points. Quantitative data was collected across assessments of walking, balance, hand function, postural sway, gait and quality of life measures. Qualitative data was collected via semi-structured interviews. Results indicated a range of physical, emotional, social and cognitive benefits for participants.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
