A new health and fitness opportunity for those with multiple sclerosis is about to hit Sydney.
Dance For Health is inviting people with multiple sclerosis to join a complementary open movement class. It will be held on Friday 10 April at Sydney Dance Company.
Dance For Health Academy was founded in Holland by Andrew Greenwood. The Academy offers dance and movement to people with disabilities, tailor made to various mobility levels. Andrew was invited to Sydney as a ballet master, and would like to give a master class to a group of people with MS.
The idea behind the open class is to launch regular classes starting in Sydney. The Academy is aiming for two regular classes per week. It is hoped that they will receive some funding to keep the cost of classes to a minimum. They are looking to introduce this dance program to the rest of Australia in the near future.
Gwen Korebrits trained as a classical dancer in the UK. She has owned her own dance school and taught at many schools and colleges. Gwen is Andrew’s cousin, and they have collaborated to introduce Dance For Health to Australia, as this program had a successful response in Europe.
MS Australia is excited about this great opportunity and encourage those in the MS community to take part.
