Launching our research report for Dancing with Parkinson's at National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN)

as we begin a new term of Dancing with Parkinson’s at NHNN, with funding provided by the Friends of UCLH, we’re pleased to release our research report from the pilot programme which took place from September 2018 - March 2019

In September 2018, Danielle Teale Dance began a special programme in partnership with National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery (NHNN), Queen Square; the largest dedicated Neurological Hospital and a branch of University College London Hospitals, UCLH. The pilot was funded by The National Brain Appeal, Small Acorns Grant Programme and included a pilot research study led by Danielle Teale and Ben Beare (NHNN Research Physiotherapist).

We were delighted to share our practice from the voices of our dancers in a Dancing with Parkinson’s in Practice Symposium event in March 2019, and following this we have released this detailed report sharing the programme and findings from the programme.

We tend to do things TO people, FOR people or WITH people. I don’t very much like having things done to me, and I will usually challenge people trying to do things for me. It’s with people that I like to be; in the dancing with Parkinson’s space we are in constant togetherness.


We’re pleased that following the programme’s success in 2018-19, the Friends of UCLH have funded the continuation of the programme for the 2019-20 season.
