About Adaptive Dance
Toledo Ballet's Adaptive Dance Program is specifically designed for children and adults with Downs Syndrome. Modeled after a similar program by the Boston Ballet, the classes provide students with Downs the chance to move and dance to rhythms that naturally emerge from their bodies. Experiencing the sheer joy of movement is the focus of these classes, however additional benefits include: improving muscle tone, motor skills and balance, developing an appreciation of music and rhythm and using these to direct body movement, and developing emotional well being and social skills.
