Unified Dance is offered for students with special needs entering grades 3-8 in the 2017 school year. Dance can be a unique and effective way to reach students with special needs because it is nonverbal. Dance can help students gain balance, allow them to express emotion, and gain muscle control. In dance, they interact socially through parallel interaction, which can be less overwhelming on sensitive nervous systems. Students will learn the basics of movement, rhythm, ballet fundamentals, and explore an introduction to jazz. In addition to class instruction with Beth Salito, each student will be paired with a junior or senior dancer. Class will participate in a Winter Showcase and the annual June production.
Interested dancers and parents need to attend a workshop on Saturday, August 26th at 11:00am at The Dance Workshop.
Weekly Class begins 9/16 and will run on Saturday’s 9:15-10:00am in Studio 3.
This class is made possible with a grant from Ciara’s Light Foundation.
