Cambridge, UK – 14 June 2018 – Cresset, innovative provider of outstanding software for molecular discovery, is pleased to announce its support for ‘Parkinson’s and the Tango Effect’, a book written by Kate Swindlehurst, a tango dancer living with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s. It is being crowd-funded through the publisher Unbound.
‘Parkinson’s and the Tango Effect’ began with a tango lesson and grew into an exploration of the healing potential of tango. The book builds on research on the impact of dance on Parkinson’s symptoms and takes it a stage further, with a behind-the-scenes record of private lessons and contributions from tango teachers. It documents the emotional and social benefits of the dance and its impact on the quality of life for people living with Parkinson’s.
Kate will be talking about the book and her experiences in three upcoming events:
- 19th June, 6:30pm to 8:30pm: Kate will present at PechaKucha Cambridge Vol. 15 at the Bradfield Centre, Science Park Road, Cambridge CB4 0GF
- 3rd July, 12:15pm: Kate will be in conversation with Poet in Residence Jude Simpson at a Literary Lunch hosted by the charity Home-Start Royston & South Cambridgeshire in The Old Bull Inn, Royston; to book call 01763 262262, email firstname.lastname@example.org book online through ticketsource.co.uk/hsrc.
