Ballet Expressions

Ballet Expressions

This inclusive class has a specifically designed adaptive curriculum to provide kids of ALL abilities with a therapeutic dance experience. Students are able to be successful and explore dance while being in a safe environment. Students will gain increased body awareness, develop fundamental motor skills, improve self-esteem, concentration and focus, and have fun expressing themselves creatively. Caregivers are welcome to connect with other Ballet Expression families where they can observe their children through a one-way glass window.

  • Classes taught by Heather Sutton—registered dance/movement therapist with degrees in Special Physical Education & Motor Development and Somatic Counseling Psychotherapy
