Q. What is your class like?
A. Our special needs dance class is similar to any other dance class with only a few slight differences. We start with an uncomplicated series of stretches, warming up our head and arms, then sitting down in a straddle to reach for one side, then the other, to the middle, and then a pike stretch with pointed feet and flexed feet, and we finish with a butterfly stretch. We do these in a circle so that we can all see each other on an equal level. We want to ensure our seating arrangement reinforces that all who are invited to sit are highly and equally favored. We then form two lines (applying ‘window’ spacing) to work on a dance. Some weeks we practice some technique and steps before our dance. Other weeks we go straight into working on our dance. We keep the music upbeat and fun but not too fast, the routines simple and the steps slow.
Q. Does my child need to have dance experience?
A. No Experience is required. This is the perfect program for beginning dancers. All steps are demonstrated by the instructor with the correct execution of the movement, musicality, and terminology so that beginner dancers can understand the fundamentals of dance together.
Q. What should my dancer wear to class?
A. Dancers participating in our class are allowed to wear but not limited to Leotard and tights, Leggings, Jazz pants, T-shirts. Please have your hair pulled away from your face in a ponytail.
