CHAMPIONING MOVEMENT: NOBA Dance for Parkinson’s Community Building and Outreach Activities Across Southeast Louisiana – New Orleans, LA
Now entering its fifth year, NOBA’s Dance for Parkinson’s (DFP) program offers free, ongoing creative movement classes for people with Parkinson’s or other similar mobility challenges, as well as family members, caregivers, and friends.
Through its CHAMPIONING MOVEMENT project, NOBA aims to provide critical support for under-resourced groups and rural areas in Southeast Louisiana during these pivotal, post-pandemic times. With a focus on recovery and discovery, the project’s overarching goal is to empower people of all backgrounds with Parkinson’s throughout the region to thrive and live well today and into the future. The project will build upon the successes of its Dance for Parkinson’s Program and corresponding cross-sector collaborations in Orleans and Jefferson parishes, expanding its network to identify, connect with, and reach geographically and demographically under-resourced communities and groups.
