Workshop geared to Special Needs students year-round:

1 – Students are introduced to ballet kinesthetically through feeling the costume and the shoes with their hands.
2 – Students practice auditory learning through hearing the music.
3 – They are asked to use colors to express what they feel when hearing the music.
4 – Then students are asked to match the facial expression with the emotion they assign to the music.
5 – Visually, students watch the dancer dance a routine.
6 – Finally, students are asked to mimic a piece of the dance routine.  Then free dance to the music.
