Adaptive Dance

Toledo Ballet’s Adaptive Dance Program for children and young adults allows students with Down Syndrome, or similar abilities, to experience the sheer joy of movement and music. The program’s benefits include: improving muscle tone, developing motor skills and balance, appreciating music and rhythm and using these skills to direct body movement, and developing emotional well-being and social skills. Classes are taught by Toledo Ballet Faculty member Ann Heckler.

Toledo Ballet remains committed to making dance accessible to as many members of our community as possible. Our outreach programs promote literacy, promote good physical fitness, celebrate creativity and personal expression, and much more. Do you know an organization that might benefit from an outreach program with TB? Please contact us.
