Organised by the School of Dance at The Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts and funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, The Jockey Club Dance Well Project is a creative movement programme designed to include people with Parkinson’s disease and people of different ages and abilities through regular dance classes and activities in artistic spaces.
The project is developed from the Dance Well initiative originated in Italy in 2013.
The first stage of this project is a 60-hour hybrid Train-the-Trainer Programme providing training for dance artists and arts practitioners who want to develop a speciality working with people with Parkinson’s disease. Participants will learn about the disease and modify movement teaching to improve the lives of those living with Parkinson’s disease.
Date: March – June 2022 (Detailed timetable in the registration link below)
Location: HKAPA or online platform
Facilitator: Overseas and local artists, researchers, healthcare and social professionals
Free of charge, limited quota
Participants who have completed the Train-the-Trainer Programme may be invited to join the recruitment of #Dancewell teachers for #Dancewell classes to the Parkinson’s disease community in the coming three years.
