Unique to the region, Movement for Life-BRAVA is the only program in the Inland Empire that provides instruction to Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patients using directed motion through dance to improve their condition. This program successfully uses the Dance for PD® model to dramatically increase the quality of life of these patients in direct coordination with their treating physician.

Movement for Life was developed by BRAVA, with guidance from the Mark Morris Dance Group in New York and the National Ballet School in Toronto, Canada.
