Researchers at the University of Roehampton in London are doing a study on behalf of English National Ballet on the effects of dance on Parkinson's. While there has been a lot of research on dance, this study is following people for three years, so longer than other studies.
So they can see if any changes in the 'dance' group are due to the dancing and not to chance, the researchers need people without Parkinson's for a comparison group.
If you are 55 or over, don't have Parkinson's and don't go to regular dance sessions you may be eligible to take part. Tests can be conducted near to where you live and any expenses will be reimbursed.
As the study isn't on our website yet, please contact the researcher directly for more information:
