Volume 3 of our best-selling Dance for PD® At Home series--available here as Streaming Video on Demand--might just be the best yet. A brand new set of dances reaches across styles and genres to inspire you to explore movement with creativity, confidence, grace and a sense of contagious fun. Volume 3 builds on the skills learned in Volumes 1 and 2 and provides exciting material that you'll want to start as soon as the disc arrives.
Like the first two Volumes, which have thousands of enthusiastic users in more than 30 countries, this disc features a complete class from the internationally-acclaimed dance program developed by Mark Morris Dance Group and Brooklyn Parkinson Group.
Dance for PD founding teachers John Heginbotham, David Leventhal and Misty Owens from the Mark Morris Dance Group incorporate dynamic, expressive movement from modern dance, ballet, jazz, tap and critically-acclaimed Mark Morris repertory to create accessible, stimulating dances for all. Like Volume 1, this class features seated and standing dances, and a teacher is always on screen to demonstrate both seated and standing versions.
Music by Stephen Foster, "Fats" Waller, Bizet and Tchaikovsky sparkles with energy in pianist William Wade's beloved arrangements.
Highlights include excerpts from Mark Morris' Dido and Aeneas, a dance about shooting stars, an homage to baseball, and a jazzy lunge exercise that sways with style. A graceful reverence rounds out an innovative, stimulating experience that you'll want to enjoy again and again.
