Greg and Ron

Our theater program was developed by stoPD co-founder Alex Montaldo. The ten-week program was specifically designed for the Parkinson’s community.  By adapting many of the techniques actors use, the course focuses on:

  • improving voice through vocal exercises,
  • improving short-term memory through scene work, and
  • Increasing spatial-awareness through movement.  

These aims are achieved through in-class and take-home exercises.  At the end of the course, students will perform the scene that they have rehearsed with their scene partner(s).  Class size is capped.  At this time, the program is only offered in New York.  A Los Angeles-based program will be announced shortly.
