Dancing with disAbility is Canada’s first dance program tailored to meet both the physical and cognitive challenges of those living with MS, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, stroke, TBI, and other movement challenges. Our goal is to create a broad-based community bringing together a wide range of people in mutual support and common understanding.

Dance and physical storytelling provide the perfect form of integrated physical and cognitive activity, challenging the body and the brain simultaneously. Music and rhythm play a huge part in stimulating neurotransmitters in the brain, the chemicals which send messages from one brain cell to the next. The movement increases oxygen and blood flow to the brain. As well, it enhances communication between right and left brain hemispheres.
WHETHER YOUR CHALLENGE IS PARKINSON’S, CEREBRAL PALSY, MS, BRAIN INJURY, OR YOU JUST WANT TO DANCE, WE WELCOME ALL NEW PARTICIPANTS
