Next Generation Ballet’s Adaptive Dance Program
Ages: 5+ Location: Online via Zoom
Next Generation Ballet (NGB), Directed by former New York City Ballet principal dancer, Philip Neal is a stepping stone for great dance talent. NGB is a pre-professional auditioned dance company that prepares serious young dancers for professional employment through instruction, coaching and performance opportunities and is the resident ballet company of the Straz Center.
The Next Generation Ballet’s Adaptive Dance program was established with the belief that everyone should have the opportunity to dance. We are committed to providing programming that is accessible for children of special abilities. We are enthusiastic about continuing our partnering with GiGi’s Playhouse.
We will offer a specialized “Dance Essentials” class for individuals with Down syndrome. This class is designed as an intro to basic dance-movement for beginning dancers. The 8-week session of classes will culminate in a mini-virtual showcase that will be filmed during the final class and shared with parents.
Space is limited to 15 participants per session for this 8-week program, so be sure to RSVP here.
Special Note: All attendees ages 10 and younger should have a parent/guardian with them during the entire session to assist them. Thank you for your cooperation!
