Dance for special needs children at Southern Arts Dance

This class lets the aspiring dancer find their creative self and motivates self esteem.


Dance Without Limits is a way for us to reach out to another segment of the community. The class is designed for students with Down Syndrome, Autism and other developmental and physical challenges.


This program is a great way for children with special needs to get involved in an extracurricular activity while improving motor skills, confidence, and socialization. Dance is a unique and effective way to reach students with special needs because it is nonverbal. Dance can help students gain balance between the two halves of the body, allow them to express emotion, gain muscle control and work through traumas. In dance, they interact socially through parallel interaction, which is typically less overwhelming on sensitive nervous systems. Through the use of simple patterns, sequencing, and repetition, students will learn the basics of movement, rhythm, the fundamentals of ballet (such as the basic 5 positions), as well as reinforcing and practicing basic academic skills (letters, numbers, shapes, etc).
