I have known Andrew Greenwood for several years in my capacity as a researcher of dance and Parkinson’s and as an education consultant. I have seen Andrew work tirelessly and passionately creating a successful programme, Dance for Health and Parkinson, which he has done with integrity.
His work in this area has influenced many people living with Parkinson’s, not just in The Netherlands where there have been many classes spring up, but also in Italy and Australia. He has also influenced many teaching artists who have come to him to learn how to teach people with Parkinson’s.
I have seen Andrew teach and without a doubt, he is one of the most inspiring dance for Parkinson’s teachers I have seen. I have seen him inspire large groups of people to dance, who have little dance training and little facility to move. His energy is infectious and the content of what he teaches is grounded in his artistic flair and in the scientific principles of effective movement.
I highly recommend Andrew to you as someone who would go down extremely well as an inspirational speaker with a successful track record in working as a pioneer in the field of dance for Parkinson’s in Europe.
