As promised, here’s one of the videos from Debbie Sternbach. This was shot at our October 15th meeting as the group on stage performed for the audience. These are movements done in a chair so falling is much less of an issue as you go through the routine.

This video was shot and edited by Richard Cox who does a lot of work with Debbie. He also has Parkinson’s Disease. Nicely done! More videos to come from Debbie and her classes.

Here is another movement video provided by Debbie Sternbach and Woodrow Thompson. It features some of the Walnut Creek students! This is a warm up video that is used before a Dance Moves Me class but can also be done at home. Play the video and get moving!

This is another Richard Cox video.
