SYNOPSIS: This moving documentary tells the unlikely story of what happens when New York’s legendary Mark Morris Dance Group joins forces with people with Parkinson’s disease to stage a unique performance. Taking a cue from professional dancers who train their minds and bodies to execute difficult movements, the Dance for PD® program develops cognitive strategies that are naturally beneficial and enjoyable for people with Parkinson’s. The program is now in more than 100 communities including Sarasota where they partner with the Neuro Challenge Foundation for Parkinson’s. Winner of Audience Awards at the Mill Valley Film Festival, Sedona International Film Festival, and the Starz Denver Film Festival, this film is about the transformative power of art and the enduring strength of the human spirit.
