The Adaptive Dance Class is for children with Down Syndrome and is a partnership among TRDance, CHKD, and DSAHR. These are specialized classes that utilize ballet and modern technical vocabulary to help each young dancer grow and develop. The class is taught by a dance instructor and a physical therapist from CHKD participates in the class. Several volunteers assist the children as well. A minimum of ten students is required to hold the class. There are no make – up classes and fees are non – refundable.
