Parkinson en Mouvement (PEM)

mission:

Parkinson en mouvement (PEM) is a non-profit organisation founded in 2007 which has developed dance/movement and voice-training classes designed for people with Parkinson's.

Based on the most advanced research as to the positive effects of music and of certain types of movement for people with PD, PEM is a unique initiative which brings together the expertise of both dance and physiotherapy, as well as elements of ergonomics and voice training. The dances foster improvements in strength, balance, endurance, range of motion, gait and posture, and integrates movements useful in daily activities.
