How in the world do you learn how to Salsa dance? There is a way I have just discovered. Morry Krispijn's Dance Company in the Netherlands produced a Salsa DVD which you can use to learn how to dance the Salsa. Isn't that cool?

Perhaps you are thinking persons who currently experience the symptoms of Parkinsons could never do the Salsa. Think again my friends. Morry tells me that persons with Parkinson's are actually quite a bit better at doing Salsa dancing than persons who do not have the symptoms. Isn't that fascinating?  

I believe Salsa dancing is a fantastic activity for a Parkinsons Support group, especially if you are getting bored with your usual routine. If you are not having enough fun this year, dance to the Salsa. Morry tells me Salsa does wonders for persons who currently experience the neurological symptoms of Parkinsons Disease.

Start the new year out with Salsa dancing. Try it! I think you will like it.
