Participants were recruited though local advertisements and through contact with local PD support groups (therefore a self-selecting sample).
Participants were asked to fill out a demographics questionnaire and the POMS according to how they felt in the past month.
Participants then attended a weekly dance class, run by a qualified dance instructor, for a period of 10 weeks (weeks 2–11).
Dance classes lasted for 50 minutes and consisted of a 10 minute warm-up, 30 minutes of dancing and ended with a 5 minute cool-down. A 5 minute break was given midway. Each class was based on rhythmic dancing to a strong beat, designed to be appropriate for the age, mobilityand constraints of people with mild to moderate PD
They completed the classes standing, with the option to sit down if desired. The styleof dancing changed every 2 weeks and consisted of Bollywood, Tango, Cheerleading, Old Time Music Hall and Party dancing based on the Charleston and Saturday Night Fever.
Participants were taught in two separate, yet identical, dance classes.
Following completion of the dance classes, participants were asked to complete the POMS for a second time a few days later in week 12 (long cycle).
In the ninth week, participants were asked to complete the BRUMS, according to how they felt ‘right now’, before and after the dance class(short cycle).
