At New Attitudes Dance Studio we recognize there are children in the community with special needs, and we embrace the opportunity to work these students.
We do not categorize those students with special needs and separate them in an isolated class from the rest of the studio. We include and incorporate ALL students into our regular classes according to age and styles of dance, however we do offer our Shooting Starz Program to those students who prefer a smaller class size to allow for enough support and supervision for those who need it.
The studio recognizes that children with special needs have many unique strengths and abilities and New Attitudes strives to help them to be successful in a regular class with other students. We have a lot of experience teaching students with a broad range of circumstances and have two assistants available in the classes where their expertise is needed.
These teachers are willing to work with children outside of class, if necessary, to help them be successful within the class. In my experience, the result of these children completing dance classes—and even performing with their peers—is very rewarding for the student, the teachers, and the other dance students participating in class.
