Description

Danceability is a dance and movement program for children and adults with special needs. Our dancers are challenged with disabilities such as autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, mental retardation, learning disabilities, ADHD, and psychiatric disorders. Dancers attend class once a week from September to May. The first half of the season focuses on learning dance technique, building friendships, playing games and having fun. the second half of the year is preparation for our annual performance; learning a choreographed routine, getting a costume and rehearsing on stage. Dancers who need help are assisted by volunteers, so that parents and staff can relax in our waiting room. Families are encouraged to utilize the time their children are in class to relax, swap resources, vent and socialize with other families as a mini-respite for themselves.
