Stand On Your Own Two Feet: Steady Balance and Movement (P)

Penn’s Village Presents:


“Stand On Your Own Two Feet:

Steady Balance and Movement”

with Judith Sachs, Anyone Can Dance, LLC

Wednesday, April 3, 2024 at 2:00 pm

*In-Person in the MacColl Room

First Presbyterian Church, 201 S. 21st St.


We can remain balanced and moving throughout our lifespan if we have intention and awareness. Join Judith Sachs, movement specialist and martial artist, to find out how! This workshop will offer innovative ways to sit, rise, stand, and move, as well as practice being out of balance, so that we know where our center of gravity is. Learn easy exercises for body, eyes, and breath to give you self-confidence in sitting, standing, walking, and recovery from falls. 


Judith Sachs, a Penn’s Village member, is Founder and Director of ANYONE CAN DANCE® LLC, an adaptive movement program in Philadelphia, PA. Although she started her professional life on the stage, and then moved to the healthcare arena, she now combines these two passions. Judith is a certified Dance for PD® teacher in Philadelphia and a 2020 and 2021 Parkinsons Foundation COE Grantee for her innovative therapy program, CLOSE CONTACT for COUPLES® with PD. This year, the program runs in collaboration with Johns Hopkins Pacing4Parkinsons program and the Maryland Association for Parkinson’s Support (MAPS) in Baltimore.

* Registrants are requested to please bring a tennis ball and water bottle with you if you can.
