Toledo Ballet’s Adaptive Dance for Children and Young Adults with Down Syndrome
Toledo Ballet’s Adaptive Dance Program for children and young adults allows students with Down Syndrome to experience the sheer joy of movement and music. The program’s benefits include: improving muscle tone, developing motor skills and balance, appreciating music and rhythm and using these skills to direct body movement, and developing emotional well-being and social skills. Financial Scholarships are available thanks to a generous grant from the Gretchen Gotthart Skeldon Fund of the Toledo Community Foundation. Classes are taught by Toledo Ballet Faculty member Ann Heckler.
