Adaptive Dance

Themed around classic story ballets, our adaptive dance classes are designed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders or other sensory sensitivities.

We emphasize creative movement principles and modified 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 music accompanies each class. Caregivers may observe and/or participate in the classes as desired.

Next Session Dates: Saturdays, Jan. 7 – March 11, 2017, 2:00 – 2:50 pm (grades 7 – 12); 3:00 – 3:50 pm (grades 1 – 6)
