Improv for Parkinson’s at Naples Players
January 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a movement disorder that affects up to 1 million people in the US and doctors diagnose 60,000 new cases each year. Improvisational Theater Games, based on the work of Viola Spolin, are being used clinically all over the world for stress management, and coping with the challenges of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. Neuroscience tells us that play, when combined with the trust building of improv experiences, builds pro-social brains that know how to interact with others in positive ways. Care Partners are encouraged to join the class and be a part of the fun! 18+ Space is Limited to 12 Students.
