In a world riddled with diseases that have no cure to date, it is necessary to find alternative methods of treatment and support for anyone going through challenging times. Dance can offer exactly that. What is science telling us about the power of dance? How does dance support people with Parkinson's? How can you turn a symptom into a superpower? Join Simone Sistarelli, founder of Popping For Parkinson's, as he unravels the potential that can be unlocked through movement.
