Adaptadance™ is an Intellidance® based dance class for children developmentally aged 1-5 with autism and other sensory processing disorders. Adaptadance™ provides children and their caregivers the opportunity to experience the joy of dance and movement together. Children love to move and figure things out, and this class will provide developmentally appropriate activities to connect with their caregivers and peers. Through movement concepts, they will continue to work on gaining balance, flexibility, and co-ordination. Animated story telling, songs and rhymes, instruments, props, and simple choreography will add fun and excitement!
Adaptadance™ is a 6-week session beginning on February 6th. Mondays 10:00am-10:45am (no class Family Day). Our instructor, Ms. Meg comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and training. She has run Marguerite Daun Dance in Winnipeg offering Intellidance® classes and adapting Intellidance® curriculum for inclusive dance education, specifically for children with Autism. With Deaf Culture and Language and Special Needs Education Assistant Certificates, Meg has worked with a variety of pre-school and school-aged children. We are excited to begin offering her Adaptadance™ program here at J’Adore Dance.
