Lastly I look forward to joining friends, peers and colleagues at the People Dancing Conference in Glasgow. In conversation with Sara Houston, I'll be sharing my experience of Dance and Parkinson's over the last 8 years in an informal sofa session (Tuesday 3 October). Plus, I'll be delivering a workshop based on my recent research with dancers with Parkinson's looking at the Collective and the Intimate spaces explored in the dance setting and the contrasting experience that these two states can create for people with Parkinson's (Wednesday 4 October).
