POSITIVE MOTION

POSITIVE MOTION FOR
CHILDREN WITH disABILITIES

The only dance arts education program of its kind in Atlanta, the Positive Motion program is a weekly one-hour dance class including ballet, jazz, and hip-hop for individuals ages 8+ with diagnoses including global developmental delay, down syndrome, autism, and cerebral palsy. “A Celebration of Positive Motion” performance is presented at the end of each 16-week session, open to all community members. These students show improved attention, concentration, emotional expression, balance, directionality, fine motor skills, ability to follow instructions, socialization, and memory. A volunteer team of teens and adults offer one-on-one attention to our participants while gaining fantastic skills in leadership and compassion.

“The past 4 months have been life-changing for my son and all the dancers. This is the dance class that I have searched for, high and low, for TEN years. Not a single other dance studio around Atlanta had the courage or the vision to consider a dance class for kids of different abilities.”
