YOU CAN DANCE: MODERN MOVEMENT
This class provides joy of music and movement to people with Autism and other Developmental Disabilities, as well as their typical peers. Popular, current, & upbeat songs are selected which provides a stimulating and appropriate setting where participants are encouraged to freely express themselves through fun but simple dance moves. In this program, individuals are introduced to a new atmosphere of fun and exciting sensory-motor experiences that integrates patterning, rhythm, audible processing, visual stimulation, and incorporates movements that strategically connect the left & right hemispheres of the brain. ‘You Can Dance’ has the power to foster a positive impact on social & cognitive activity for individuals with ASD and other Developmental Disabilities. This program was developed by Pop.Earth instructors who are AMT (Autism Movement Therapy) certified as well as a background in dance and instructors who have years of experience working with the special needs population.
