In partnership with Get Excited and Move! and the National Movement Alliance, we are excited to announce our newest Wellness program, Move On! Music, Movement & Rhythm program for those with movement disorders. Move On! will be directed by Pat Alley and Elizabeth Newkirk, who have danced on and off of Broadway, and have been dance and yoga instructors in the Savannah area for many years. Currently, they are both teaching at the Habersham YMCA in a yoga capacity. Pat was recently chosen as a 2016 Stanley J. Wertheimer Fellow, and attended training in the Dance for PD program in Brooklyn, NY. Elizabeth's training is scheduled for early 2017. She brings a wealth of knowledge from 500 plus hours of yoga instruction and years of experience modifying dance and yoga to special needs participants.
This pilot program is designed to use dance and stretching to help participants move more, build core strength, improve balance and coordination and improve muscle flexibility. The introductory rate for this pilot program is $20 per participant.
