A life-skills based dance program that utilizes dance for those who learn non-traditionally! This program is designed to illustrate movement for special needs students through developmental milestones. There are six classes within the program and each focuses on a different developmental milestone adapted for different age groups. Kids are introduced to a variety of dance styles in a scripted format and through curricular support we address emotions, class transitions, and self-regulations.
