Community Moves was created to provide more access to dance for people of all abilities. Exploring movement in an inclusive setting can increase confidence, improve physical strength, balance and coordination, and forge important social bonds.
For the past two years, with the help of the Gaillard Center and other supporters, Community Moves brought the joy of dance to children with cerebral palsy and other neuromuscular challenges. This program, based on the best practices in adaptive dance from The New York City Ballet, is open to all participants and their siblings at no cost.
This new outreach program is open to all participants at no cost so all proceeds from our Community Moves T-shirts will go directly towards funding these classes, including investing in sensory-friendly teaching materials, staffing each session with trained medical professionals and creating the opportunity for future growth of the program.
Additional information coming soon.
