Special Needs CurriculumWhat is it? The Ideal Dance Special Needs Program is a way for us to reach out to the community. The class offered is for students with Down Syndrome, Autism and other developmental disabilities. This program is a great way for children with special needs to get involved in an extracurricular activity while improving motor skills, confidence, and socialization. Dance can also be a unique and effective way to reach students with special needs because it is nonverbal. Dance can help students gain balance between the two halves of the body, allow them to express emotion, gain muscle control and work through traumas. In dance, they interact socially through parallel interaction, which can be less overwhelming on sensitive nervous systems. Through the use of simple patterns, sequencing, and repetition, students will learn the basics of movement, rhythm, the fundamentals of ballet (such as the 5 feet positions), as well as reinforcing and practicing basic academic skills (letters, numbers, shapes, etc).
