Dance as Service

Dance for Parkinson’s

Two people participate in dance class,
Dance for Parkinson's classes are held in our beautiful studio and made available to the community every Saturday during the academic year.. Gonzaga Dance Students volunteer to assist with classes and Dance Majors and Minors have the opportunity to observe dance instruction for this specific population. Our partnership with Northwest Parkinson's Foundation is another important community connection.

Every February, we celebrate Valentines with a week of caring for the whole person through dance. Formerly Love Your Body Week, the Dance Club presents panels, workshops, the Annual Screen Dance Film Festival, and performances, joining as a community to celebrate our bodies and raise funds for our Dance for Parkinson’s program.
