About the Program
The Movin’ and Groovin’ class is a fun and exciting way for children ages 5 years old and up with ASD to find meaningful movement expression. Through classes that integrate ballet and modern dance concepts, Movin’ and Groovin’ can instill various life skills from social awareness to personal awareness and self-acceptance. Our instructors utilize principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to give positive reinforcement throughout the class time, providing a safe, nurturing environment for each dancer.
Dance and Movement Explorations can help children to:
- Socially engage the mind
- Provide deeper body awareness
- Promote meaningful movement expression
Using elements of codified techniques such as ballet and modern dance can:
- Give control and communication of emotions through movement
- Reinforce understanding of social cues
- Boost development of autonomy and self-confidence
