Adaptive Dance

Experience the joy of dance and movement through MDT's Adaptive Dance Program, designed for students and individuals with autism spectrum disorders and other sensory sensitivities or disabilities.

Adaptive Dance

The art of dance provides unique opportunities for lifelong enrichment in physical, cognitive, and social & emotional skills. MDT's Adaptive Dance Program consists of a modified ballet technique combined with principles of creative movement in an inclusive, welcoming, structured, and adapted studio environment. All classes are taught by MDT faculty experienced in adaptive dance and with limited space available. Caregivers and family members are welcome to observe and/or participate in class.
