Perceptual Motion, Inc. has worked with older adults since 1985. PMI brings the rich and varied world of dance to people in retirement centers, nursing homes and community centers. We give them opportunities to experience dance as both audience and participant. Performances and Tai Chi/Movement classes specifically for older adults are designed to enhance their lives, their health, and their well being.
In performances, our combination of audience participation and performance connects the older adult audience to the performers in a very personal way. PMI’s professional older adult dancers are role models and inspiration to audiences everywhere. Our activities applaud older adults as vital and active people whom the company respects and enjoys.
The Artful Dance Project is a series of dance and visual arts workshops at retirement centers. Each site receives workshops that combine dance, visual art, and song. The culmination of the project at each site is a performance for family and friends consisting of PMI dancers, residents, and staff dancing, singing and moving together interspersed with brief anecdotes spoken and expressed through movement. Artwork created in the visual arts component is incorporated into the performance.
Classes for Teachers
Perceptual Motion is sensitive to the many demands on teachers. We strive to make every minute count to create the “AHA!” moments of discovery so crucial to retention of ideas and concepts.
We balance the teaching of specific skills with development of the ability to creatively solve problems in an effort to help teachers and students reach their full potential.
Perceptual Motion offers custom designed teacher in services, special projects, lecture demonstrations and dance residencies. Please call Lin Shook at 1-773-549-3958 for more information.
