Special Needs Dance Class

We love receiving information about resources in the community from our parents to share with everyone. Here is one of those *recommendations:

Utah Dance Artists

UDA Is Starting A Special Needs Class!

"We are excited to start a budding new program at UDA designed for individuals with physical or developmental disabilities such as down syndrome, (ASD) autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and other developmental delays (including those requiring use of a wheelchair).  Our goal is to enrich the lives of these children through the exploration of movement and dance concepts in a safe and structured environment.

"This class will introduce basic movement skills in ballet, jazz, tap and creativity; incorporating songs and games which will allow self-expression.  Our goal is to help these students build personal self-esteem, confidence and respect as they sharpen and develop fine and gross motor skills while equally working on communication, socialization and cooperation with peers and adults. 

"We would love for our UDA family to spread the word about this class! Our goal is to get started in November.  Our first step is to get a list started of children and young adults who are interested. If you know someone who would like to consider this program, please call or email the office to give us their name and contact information to receive more information.  Please spread the word!!!!"

We also have *recommendations for a private speech therapist, a local preschool, Ufit and Center Stage Players. As we get more, we'll put together a resource guide with their information, if you would like it before then (it may not be soon), just send me an email.

*Just as a discloser, we love to share anything that can be of resource to you but this is not recommended by the district or any of us that teach in the classrooms so we can not fund it.
