Welcome to Healing in Motion Dance!
The Healing In Motion program serves as a platform through which University of Utah dance students and physical therapy students collaborate in a rehabilitative setting with the goal of improving quality of lives through exercise and artistic movement.
The program holds weekly dance classes which teach ballet barre to participants with neurological conditions that impair motor function. Participants have been diagnosed with one or more strokes, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, Traumatic Brain Injury, and other varying disabilities. Classes are often themed by holidays, goals, or are in preparation for an end of the semester performance, during which time participants get to share their physical and artistic progress with their families.
