The mission of Chance to Dance is to make sure the students appreciate the art of movement through rhythmic ability and to use various music as well as imaginative play. We strive for our students to enjoy the class and develop a love for dance. These dance classes provide the opportunity for kids with special needs a CHANCE to DANCE.
Classes are offered completely FREE to families. We provide the costumes, shoes, props, supplies, and music. In keeping with tradition of dance studios, we have two recitals a year (winter and spring). Chance to Dance also gets invited to participate in several community functions throughout the year as well.
Scarves, shaker eggs, noodle bits, rhythm sticks, balls, and bean bags are just a few of the props that are used to help with coordination, movement, and strength. With a fun and upbeat teaching technique, Chance to Dance provides students with the ability to dance.
Julie Chafin is our Chance to Dance Program Director. She has taught dance for 15 years and has her dance and gym certification. She has always had a love for those with special needs. She wants to help others and surround herself with some really special kids and families.
