Movement for M.S.
Once again we are partnering with the MedStar Georgetown University Hospital Department of Neurology to bring a "Movement for M.S." course to people with Multiple Sclerosis, their caregivers, and loved ones.
This FREE course will start on September 11th and go through November 13th - there are 10 classes total.
This is a pilot program researching the benefits of dance for people with MS. Participants will be asked to fill out a simple quality of life survey before the first class and after the last class, and are encouraged to attend all classes for maximum benefit.
Deborah Riley will be the lead instructor for the course. Deborah is a professional dancer and teacher who has been hired to lead this pilot study in movement for people with MS. Deborah will be receive teaching assistance during classes from dancer and yoga instructor, Alison Waldman.
Below and attached is a flyer for the class. This is a self-selected population and the group will be limited to 20 individuals. The sessions are free and we hope to have the group participate for the duration of the ten sessions.
The location of the classes will be at Dance Exchange: 7117 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, MD 20912.
Thank you so much for your consideration! If you are interested in participating in this year's Movement for MS course, please email lead instructor, Deborah Riley, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
