Adaptive dance is a movement exploration for children with medical, physical or learning impairments. Through the use of movement and dance, children will;


  • Work on body awareness

  • Motor planning

  • Coordination & fitness

  • Balance

  • Focus and use of props such as scarves, balls, etc.

  • Practicing social skills in structured activities


The program is sensory-motor based with many opportunities for language and social skills development. Children will learn a variety of dance steps, games and other activities that will have everyone moving to the music. Props such as scarves, balls, and obstacle courses are often used to enhance overall confidence as well as the ability to participate in a group setting. Parent/volunteer assistance may be required for the younger age groups or for those with limited movement.
