Dance Ensemblé

Dance Ensemblé is a community dance group attended by current and former Barker Lab researchers and founded by Barker Lab post doc Dr Romina Vuono together with her colleague Jeanette Simpson. The group, based in Cambridgeshire, has been raising vital funds for Parkinson’s UK in their dance classes for adults, held at Frank Lee Leisure and Fitness, over the past year. On May 16th the first cheque was presented to Julie Wilson of Parkinson’s UK, representing the first amount of money raised from the classes.
