New exercise class offered for people with Parkinson's disease

The Wisconsin Parkinson Association has announced a new exercise class for people in the Rhinelander/ Minocqua area who have Parkinson's disease. The eight-week series of classes, titled Parkinson's Dance & Creative Movement, will take place at the Minocqua Public Library at 415 Menominee Street on Mondays from June 3-July 22 from 10 to 11 a.m., organizers said in a press release.

"Classes are free, and taught by instructor Melanie Panush Lindert," the release states. "Classes will involve chair and standing movements to music and are specifically designed for people with Parkinson's disease. Participants are welcome to come alone, or bring a care partner with them."

Space is limited, and registration is required by May 28. Call the Minocqua Public Library to register at 715-356-4437.

Parkinson disease is a movement disorder characterized by tremor, slowness of movement, postural instability and muscle rigidity. Parkinson's affects over 20,000 Wisconsinites. For more information, visit or call 414-312-6990.
