The School of Dance and Music for Children with Disabilities consists of classes both on-site at Segerstrom Center for the Arts and off-site throughout Orange County, where individuals learn the art form of dance. We are passionate about providing an inclusive, fun, and rich dance experience for students by making dance accessible to all, regardless of ability. Our classes comprise of dance and music lessons from a 3-person team—dance instructor, music instructor and physical/occupational therapist. The dance teacher is the lead voice in our classes, however, our musicians play a vital role because not only do they accompany the dance lesson, they also teach a 10-15 minute music lesson in each class. These lessons usually cover broad topics and they aim to teach the students new vocabulary and tools to enhance the dance lesson of the day.
