Bronx House School for Performing Arts has teamed up with the Mark Morris Dance Group and the Brooklyn Parkinson's Group to bring the first-ever dance class for individuals with Parkinson's disease to the Bronx. The program, already available in several other boroughs of New York, is internationally acclaimed.

According to New York News 12, this pilot program encourages participants to explore movement during dance classes that help improve balance, coordination, and muscle strength. The classes are free to Parkinson's patients and their families.
