English National Ballet

English National Ballet's (ENB) Dance for Parkinson's commenced in 2010 and supports people living with Parkinson's, helping to improve quality of life through involvement in dance and social cultural activities. The physical and social emotional benefits have been evidenced by research underpinning the programme led by Dr. Houston at Roehampton University. ENB’s programme is delivered in east London at ENB studios, and through affiliated hub partners: Royal Albert Hall - West London, Merseyside Dance Initiative (MDI) - Liverpool, DanceEast - Ipswich, Oxford City Council - Oxford and National Dance Company Wales – NDCWales - Cardiff. Due to Covid-19, the programme is continuing online: https://www.ballet.org.uk/project/dance-for-parkinsons/

Information for volunteers

English National Ballet (ENB) is launching a pilot Befriending Scheme in London, to reach out to Parkinson’s participants who are currently experiencing extreme loneliness and isolation as a result of the pandemic restrictions. Our Parkinson’s participants may experience a number of barriers to participating in online ENB Dance for Parkinson’s provision, separating them from their regular social and physical activity. The pilot Befriending Scheme aims to bridge this gap, and to give participants a regular social experience and the confidence to participate where possible. Volunteers will be offered training and support and an introduction to English National Ballet. For more information contact: engagement@ballet.org.uk We look forward to welcoming you to English National Ballet.
