Free Dance Classes for Cancer Recovery

My col­league Martha Eddy, Ed.D., is an expert on the use of move­ment in a vari­ety of con­texts.  Among her many many projects, she’s con­sult­ed with the New York City Board of Edu­ca­tion to devel­op a dance and move­ment cur­ricu­lum for pub­lic school stu­dents; she teach­es move­ment class­es to help indi­vid­u­als improve their vision; she uti­lizes move­ment ses­sions in her ther­a­peu­tic work with chil­dren with neu­rode­vel­op­men­tal dis­abil­i­ties; and she has served as chair and facil­i­ta­tor for inter­na­tion­al con­fer­ences on move­ment sci­ence.

Mov­ing For Life is one of her more excit­ing projects.  They offer free dance class­es for peo­ple recov­er­ing from can­cer.  Dance has a proven track record in help­ing can­cer sur­vivors.  And Dr. Eddy’s efforts are begin­ning to gain recog­ni­tion.   Most recent­ly, her foun­da­tion has received fund­ing from the Lance Arm­strong Foun­da­tion to con­tin­ue expand­ing her work.

If you are a can­cer patient or a can­cer sur­vivor, or know some­one else who is, find out more.  Fol­low this link for more infor­ma­tion.
