Special guest teaching artist Pat Hall leads an Afro-Caribbean class specially created for Dance for PD® participants. Hall is an internationally acclaimed dancer/choreographer and teacher. She is a recipient of an Artists Fellowship in choreography from the New York Foundation for the Arts. Her style is most influenced by African, Caribbean, and contemporary American dance. Her interest in ceremonial and ritual practices of indigenous peoples most influences her choreographic work. Ms. Hall uses her knowledge of the traditional to create contemporary movements and rituals that celebrate life and create new traditions. She brings an unparalleled spirit and depth of understanding to her performances which has been enriched through extensive cultural research. Sought after as a teacher and lecturer, Ms. Hall has been an Artist-in-Residence at Cornell University and currently is a teaching artist for Brooklyn Academy of Music in the Department of Education and Humanities. She is also a consultant on their DanceAfrica/Restoration project. Ms. Hall is an adjunct professor at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University. About Dance for PD Born from the idea that people with Parkinson’s could benefit from the insight and specific techniques and methods used by dancers to guide their own bodies and minds, Dance for PD® strives to increase coordination, balance, flexibility, and strength through music and movement from a broad range of dance styles. In classes led by professionally-trained dancers and musicians, participants experience the grace, fluidity, and power of dance in a social, joyful, and supportive environment. Through a special partnership with Canada's National Ballet School, Dance for PD® is able to invite people around the world to join us as we share classes from our flagship program at the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn, NY.
