William Wade's energetic and highly danceable music has inspired and motivated participants in Dance for PD®'s Brooklyn and Manhattan flagship classes for more than a decade.  

In this companion album to Volumes 2 and 3 of our At Home DVD series, William plays a collection of classical and popular favorites specially selected, arranged, and performed for Dance for PD® classes--and all dance and movement classes that demand a clear, singable melody and supportive rhythm.

This special double album is chock full of beautifully-rendered songs from the DVDs as well as exclusive bonus tracks that include a sampling of musical selections from Mark Morris repertory, William's electrifying rendition of Leonard Bernstein's 'Cool' from West Side Story, and five rhythmically-calibrated walking grooves that will get you moving and keep you going. 

Let William's wonderful music inspire you with a sense of physical confidence, grace, playfulness, and expressiveness.

"William's music helps me feel graceful and powerful in class, and his music is essential to anyone with Parkinson's who wants to enjoy dance and movement."
