Dance with us in a Peter Pan-themed class where we explore the movement of Peter, Tinker Bell, Wendy, Captain Hook and more! The class aligns with PBT's sensory-friendly Peter Pan ballet performance and is tailored for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders or other sensory sensitivities. Our classes emphasize creative movement principles and simplified ballet technique within a welcoming and structured studio environment. 

Classes are taught by PBT School instructors experienced in Adaptive Dance and are limited to 15 students. Live percussion music will accompany the class. Caregivers may observe and/or participate in the classes as desired.
