Prestige LOVE for Dance and Movement Program for Dancers with Special Needs
This program is geared towards students with special needs - those with physical, mental and social challenges. Students who need more guidance and help than a typical setting can provide. These programs run as a 6 week session and are offered as 30 minutes or 45 minutes classes.  Some with parental/caregiver guidance and others where students will work on their own without parental/caregiver guidance. Miss Katherine has worked with children who have sensory processing disorders - mainly those on the Autism Spectrum as well as other types of disorders (Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, ADD, ADHD) for many years and is very excited to be giving these children the opportunity to explore the world of dance.  She has her degree in Psychology and works at New Heights Early Learning Services specifically working with children who have Autism. She has also volunteered with Special Olympics ski program. She is a RAD certified teacher and is excited to be able to foster confidence, knowledge and skill acquisition through dance and movement. 

Our programs run from September to June and we follow the ADAPT Syllabus in Tap and Jazz  and The Royal Academy Of Dance Syllabus for Ballet. 

All of these programs participate in our year end Recital.
