Canceled: Dance for People with Parkinson's

Laura Chiaramonte and Kate Insolia, instructors
Beverly Hillmer, accompanist

On March 11, 2020, the University of Illinois communicated new guidelines for university operations, enacted to safeguard health during current COVID-19 conditions.

In accordance with these guidelines, all public events the remainder of the Spring 2020 semester are canceled as of Monday, March 16, 2020. While this action is necessary and wise, we are of course deeply saddened not to be able to help create experiences of joy and community in person at this time.

Read the complete Krannert Center COVID-19 update.

Experience the fellowship of communal dance with instructors Laura Chiaramonte and Kate Insolia of Dance at Illinois. If you or a loved one is living with Parkinson’s, join us to explore gentle movement in a safe, welcoming environment.

Set to uplifting, familiar music, this monthly class lasts approximately an hour and a half and may assist with the preservation and improvement of balance, flexibility, and strength. Please dress comfortably for this full-body workshop.


  • Parking in the Krannert Center garages is free after 5pm on weekdays, and all day on weekends.
  • A limited number of metered spaces are located on every level of the underground garage (15 minutes for 25¢).
  • Additional metered spaces are on each street surrounding the Center.
  • Spaces marked with the accessibility sign can be found on every level of the underground garages. Metered spaces require payment unless you have a meter-exempt hangtag or license plate.

All other spaces in the underground garage are reserved for permit holders. Campus Parking patrols the lots regularly and will ticket anyone who does not have a permit parked in these spots.

This workshop was developed by the Mark Morris Dance Group, the Unity Parkinson’s Disease Support Group, Carle Clinic, Dance at Illinois, and Krannert Center.
