Feel the Beat is a dance studio for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. We are focused on building a community for these children where they can learn and experience the art of dance in their native language along with providing an opportunity to connect with their peers. We have developed a curriculum that incorporates a combination of touch, Sign Language and a one-of-a-kind vibrating dance floor. As we build this community up we want it to be known that we offer dance for ALL! In addition, we are forging a path in sound accessible dance environments through the use of innovative technology.

Feel the Beat is looking for awesome, passionate, dedicated grant writer(s) to help us make an impact! We need your help to reach more families, improve our programming, and get the community moving!

Volunteer for and complete periodic grant-specific tasks of your choice.

Desire to make an impact!!

Mission Statement

"Feel the Beat" is dedicated to bringing the expressive world of dance and music education to children who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing and for children with special needs.

Description

Feel the Beat is a dance studio for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Community. We are focused on building a community for these children where they can learn and experience the art of dance in their native language along with providing an opportunity to connect with their peers. We have developed a curriculum that incorporates a combination of touch, musical vibrations, Sign Language and specially constructed tools to aid in the experience of music and dance.

The current state of dance education is geared toward the mass population of children, those who are able bodied and unencumbered by a learning difference or an impairment. We are missing an opportunity to support the musical and dance education to our children who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing who need a more customized curriculum that incorporates their form of communication. These children are missing opportunities to experience the joy of music, dance and expression
