Experimental: Dance Group
This group will be undergo dance classes two times a week, for 12 weeks. 24 sessions.
Intervention administered: Dance classes inspired by the rhythm of Forró and Samba.
Other: Dance Program
The dance program consists of dance classes inspired by the rhythm of Forró and Samba. The sessions are divided into four stages: 1) stretching and sensitization of the body, with the support of chairs; 2) balance and rhythm exercises, with the support of the bar; 3) dance inspired by the genres worked - Forró and Samba; 4) Fun activities that stimulate socialization or with visual clues, working displacements, motor coordination, rhythm, improvisation and creativity. 24 sessions, twice a week, which session take 60 min.
Experimental: Walking Group
This group will be undergo walking training two times a week, for 12 weeks. 24 sessions.
Intervention administered: Walking program with 3 different moments.
Other: Walking Program
The walking program consists of 3 moments: 1) a brief warm-up of free walking for 3 minutes in the comfortable velocity; 2) then walking according to the training cycle, the intensity will be between 60 and 80% of the reserve heart rate; 3) a relaxation. 24 sessions, twice a week, which session take 60 min.
- The change in functional mobility [ Time Frame: Before and after 12 weeks after the intervention ]The functional mobility will be assessed using the Timed Up and Go Test. This first outcome will be evaluated before and after 12 weeks of Dance Classes and Walking Training in both groups.
- The change in the gait specific parameters [ Time Frame: Before and after 12 weeks after the intervention ]The gait specific parameters will be assessed using the BTS SMART DX 7000. This secondary outcome will be evaluated before and after 12 weeks of Dance Classes and Walking Training in both groups.
- The change in Quality of Life [ Time Frame: Before and after 12 weeks after the intervention ]Quality of Life will be assessed using Parkinsons' Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39). The Quality of Life questionnaire will be evaluated before and after 12 weeks of Dance Classes and Walking Training in both groups. Parkinson's Disease Questionnaire (PDQ39) measures patients' quality of life through 39 questions. The instrument is divided into eight dimensions: mobility, activities of daily living, emotional well-being, stigma, social support, cognition, communication and bodily discomfort. In total, patients answer 39 questions that should be noted among five response options: "never," "rarely," "sometimes," "often" or "always."
- The change in motor symptoms [ Time Frame: Before and after 12 weeks after the intervention ]Motor symptoms will be assessed using Unified Parkinsons' Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). The motor symptoms will be evaluated before and after 12 weeks of Dance Classes and Walking Training in both groups. We will use the Part III of the Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS III), which measures the motor symptoms of the disease. Part III of the UPDRS is composed of 14 items, covering questions 18 to 31 of the scale. Each item has 5 response options that add up to 0 to 4 points, how bigger is the total score on the scale; greater is the patient's motor impairment.
