Dancing with Parkinson's continues Autumn 2019

The Danielle Teale Dance, Dancing with Parkinson’s programme is going from strength to strength. This Autumn there’s lots to celebrate, as we continue four classes across London, and welcome a new cohort of dance artists. Take a look at our fantastic team by clicking the image below:

PEOPLE

Classes take place in four locations across London, St. Joseph’s Hospice in Hackney, National Hospital for Neurology in Russell Square, Poplar Union in Tower Hamlets, and Queen Mary’s Hospital Roehampton, part of St. George’s Hospital Trust. Download our flyer and contact dancing.parkinsons@gmail.com for more information about the programme and to register your interest to join in.

…enthusiasm, creativity and empathy shine through, and every class is a pleasure. As dancers rather than patients we are able to let go of our worries and lose ourselves in the creativity.

CID Project Update

The Dancing with Parkinson’s CID Project is at the midway point, with four fantastic workshops already having taken place at Poplar Union. Our dancers and team have been experiencing multiple approaches to moving, choreographing and connecting led by Artistic Director Danielle Teale and guest artists Bim Malcomson, Chloe Mead (Casson & Friends) and Kimberley Harvey.

The full project is being documented and explored on the ‘explorations in collectivity’ blog where you can keep up to date with the thoughts and explorations from our dancers, guests and collaborators. Take a look at the articles and summary pieces by clicking the links below:

classes continue at Queen Square

After a successful pilot at National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery 2018-19 I am delighted we will be continuing regular sessions this week. Dancers have been involved in a variety of creative projects since the classes began, including submitting a beautiful film to the World Parkinson’s Congress this March.

Please download the classes flyer here for more information, or get in touch with us at dancing.parkinsons@gmail.com

Summer term classes take place on Thursdays from 23 May to 4 July 2019.

Our recent presentation at the Dancing with Parkinson’s in Practice Symposium demonstrated the high quality artistic work we have been exploring, and the research questions we are beginning to refine alongside the dancers.

This film by Marco Benozzi was screened at the symposium and I’m thrilled to share it with you now:

a new partnership for dancing with parkinson's. Danielle Teale Dance and DanceWest.

I am delighted to be expanding the work and and reach of my research with people with Parkinson’s alongside partner organisation DanceWest, to bring high quality dance opportunities for people with Parkinson’s, their loved ones, companions, friends and carers in a supportive and sociable community environment.

Dance Journeys 2018

 

I'm so proud to have been a choreographer once again on this wonderful project led by English National Ballet, now in its 5th year. Hammersmith Academy students have smashed it and I can't wait to see them shine tomorrow at Sadler's Wells alongside three other schools, Friern Barnet, Hampstead School and Cophtall School, as well as the incredibly talented ENBYouthCo dancers.
