Beverly Hillmer, accompanist

Experience the fellowship of communal dance with instructor Laura Chiaramonte and Kate Kuper 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 70-minute monthly class may assist with the preservation and improvement of balance, flexibility, and strength. Please dress comfortably for this full-body workshop.

Workshop Location: Level 2 Rehearsal Rooms
• The Opera Rehearsal Room can be reached most directly from the Yellow and Orange parking garages (off Illinois Street).
• If you need help locating the Opera Rehearsal Room, you can watch a YouTube video that walks you from the Orange parking garage to the class.

Please note: The 10am morning classes are held in the Drama Rehearsal Room and the 6:30pm evening classes are held in the Opera Rehearsal Room.

• 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.
