Hubbard Street Parkinson's Project
Friday, March 4, 2016 - 
5:00pm -7:30pm
Hubbard Street Dance Chicago is proud to offer the oldest Parkinson's dance program in the Midwest, Hubbard Street Parkinson's Project. 
The program uses contemporary dance techniques to work to slow the progress of the disease, as well as providing a community of support for our students. All Hubbard Street Parkinson's Project dancers explore improvisation, technique and artistry in the long-running class and community. Classes are designed to be drop-in for participants or as multiple opportunities for dancers to meet and learn together. Participants in this workshop will experience a standard Parkinson's Project class, with opportunity to ask questions and discuss how to apply movement activities to their work.  Workshop presented by Kathryn Humphreys and staff, the Director of Youth, Education, and Community Programs.

Lent is a time of renewal for the whole Church, for each community and every believer. Above all it is a “time of grace” (2 Cor 6:2). God does not ask of us anything that he himself has not first given us. “We love because he first has loved us” (1 Jn 4:19).
Pope Francis

As we enter the season of Lent, please take some time to check out the Archdiocese of Chicago's webpage with a Lenten Resource Guide and Events for the Lenten Season.
