The majority of hemiparetic patients have balance disorders, which impact independence in daily living activities and walking. Conventional techniques used in rehabilitation improve balance but have shown no effects on dynamic balance required during walking. Recently dance is proposed to improve dynamic balance in older people and people with Parkinson's disease. Although many studies showed that dance is an effective activity to improve balance in these people, it has never been assessed in hemiparetic patients (except a case report). The aim of this study is to show that a dance program improves the balance of hemiparetic patients, compared to a control group. This randomized controlled study aims to include 40 hemiparetic patients who will perform a dance program (experimental group) or a upper-limb rehabilitation program (control group) for 8 one-hour sessions.
Randomized controlled study aims to include 40 hemiparetic patients who will perform a dance program (experimental group) or a upper-limb rehabilitation program (control group) for 8 one-hour sessions. These activities are carried out in the form of a workshop and are already proposed in common practice in the service. They are carried out by the physiotherapists of the service. Patients are assigned in one of two study groups. It is specified that they will be able to carry out the program of the opposing group at the end of the study in order to limit the "disappointment" effect. The evaluations will be carried out at 4 and 8 weeks and will mainly rely on data of balance, function, quality of life and satisfaction

The use of dancing for therapeutic purposes.
Loss of higher cortical functions with retained awareness due to multiple cortical or subcortical CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Memory, judgment, attention span, and impulse control are often impaired, and may be accompanied by PSEUDOBULBAR PALSY; HEMIPARESIS; reflex abnormalities, and other signs of localized neurologic dysfunction. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1060)
The use of biological mechanisms, usually involving living organisms such as bacteria, for the reduction or regulation of the population of noxious, destructive, or dangerous pests. Environmental concerns have focused attention on natural forms of disease control as potentially safe and effective alternatives to chemical pesticides. This has led to increased efforts to develop control strategies that rely on natural predators and parasites or that involve genetically engineered microbial pest control agents.
Those forms of control which are exerted in less concrete and tangible ways, as through folkways, mores, conventions, and public sentiment.
Control which is exerted by the more stable organizations of society, such as established institutions and the law. They are ordinarily embodied in definite codes, usually written.
