Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system with impaired communication between the brain and the body. Walking impairment is prevalent in MS. There is no documented evidence for improving walking agility or smoothness of movements in exercise interventions for those with MS. We report the results of a classical ballet based targeted dance program on clinical measures of balance, posture, and ataxia as well as a quantitative measure of smoothness of gait. The results demonstrate statistically significant improvements in all measures.
