Chance to Dance

about the program

Chance to Dance is currently offered to elementary children with autism, physical disabilities, and/or visual impairments. This program provides children the opportunity to dance and perform to live music. It is centered on the power of the arts to enhance children’s lives. For some, the program may be their first meaningful participation in the arts and in particular, dance and performance. Chance to Dance is delivered as a residency that consists of eight to ten weekly classes occurring during the school day, culminating in a performance which celebrates each dancer’s unique talents and achievements.
