A Chance to Dance Activity

Everyone Deserves "A Chance To Dance"

 

                                                        

 

Children with special needs and learning differences are often excluded from traditional dance and arts programs.  It’s our collective mission to provide the education and tools necessary for teachers, students, and parents to effectively facilitate inclusion, giving all “A Chance to Dance!”

HELP CAN MAKE IT HAPPEN
