Adaptive Dance



Hope you enjoy Elizabeth's dance recital she had this summer (she is the smallest one in the class). Her adapted dance class has been one of her favourite activities where she can be herself and have fun. With assistance from her helpers she is working on new skills and building her strength. Her helpers are the most amazing young girls who are so talented and who give time from their busy schedules to help Elizabeth. We are so thankful to her teacher for giving children with disabilities and opportunity to dance and to shine.

Beautiful! That was perfectly choreographed! Not being a dancer I am so impressed whenever I see dance adapted. The movements and music go so well together and at the same time are perfect for a variety of abilities. Barbara

TherExtras brought me here for this post (I'd just posted on dance & special needs too) -- that was magnificent. Big cheers for Elizabeth!
