My favorite thing about Dancing Dreams is the fact that it’s a program that provides an outlet for dancers of all ages and levels to connect with other dancers that may have a physical challenge...it’s just a beautiful experience.
I honestly can’t believe that I can do this. I just love dance. When I dance I feel like I can do anything.
I feel really beautiful when I am dancing
What I’ve learned from Dancing Dreams is that it’s okay to embrace your differences and to be exposed to other types of people that are just different and who have different personalities and needs.
My favorite thing about Dancing Dreams is that it gives me an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and meet new people and experience new things.
All kids in the class, regardless of ability, are able to do the dances that we do in a way that works for them. And everyone has fun.
For that entire 45 minutes, every time it ends I always wish it could go on a little bit longer.
Dancing Dreams is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a three fold mission:
Classes are held weekly in our three locations. They are designed to allow our dancers to experience the joy of dance regardless of their physical ability. The year ends with an Annual Performance, an onstage celebration of the achievements of our students.
Teen volunteer "Helpers" are enrolled in the Dancing Dreams Leadership Program. Helpers attend workshops to enhance leadership skills and are paired with a dancer whom they assist at weekly classes and performances.
Through community outreach, especially to elementary school children, we aim to increase awareness of and tolerance for those with physical challenges.
