About the class: PD Movement Lab

A laboratory is a place for exploration, for experiment, for innovation. PD Movement Lab is for all those things. Started in 2006 by Pamela Quinn in collaboration with Brooklyn Parkinson Group, the PD Movement Lab has been at the forefront of designing new approaches to the many day-to-day physical challenges faced by people with Parkinson's. Blending her background in dance training with her personal experience as a Parkinson's patient, Quinn invents tools that allows persons with PD to rediscover mobility and greater physical freedom.
Dance for PD is pleased to administer PD Movement Lab classes live from Brooklyn weekly on Fridays from 2-3 PM, and proud to include the resource on our digital class archive.
PD Movement Lab is expanding its presence online, conveying vital information, offering resources, and delivering best practices in the management of PD to people with Parkinson's everywhere. Learn more by visiting www.pdmovementlab.com.


About Pamela Quinn

Pamela Quinn is a professional dancer and PD Coach who has had Parkinson’s disease for over 20 years. Her personal experience of PD combined with her keen knowledge of the body derived from dance training gives her a unique position from which to analyze patients’ physical functioning and to imagine creative solutions to the problems posed by PD. Interested in finding as many ways as possible to counter PD’s challenges, she experiments with a variety of approaches in her lab: cueing systems, music, dance, athletic drills, imagery and physical strategies, which together offer concrete tools to improve her students mobility and lives. Her innovative approach has achieved widespread recognition and made her a sought-after teacher and speaker in the PD community in the U.S. and abroad. She has been invited to present her work at some of the most forward-thinking medical institutions in the country and at the 2nd, 3rd and 4th World Parkinson’s Congresses, the 2nd Parkinson’s Congress of Japan, the 2015 EXPO in Milan, Italy and the 2016 American Congress of Rehabilitative Medicine.
