Beyond Words Music and Dance Center (Adaptive Dance)

Adapted Dance
The ultimate goal of our adaptive dance program is to mainstream our dancers into a traditional dance class. The benefit to these classes is the low teacher to student ratio (2:4-8). Skills taught in these classes are the same as a typical dance class, but are tailored to each dancer's unique needs and abilities in order to provide the most successful learning environment.

Private Adapted Dance

Any age.
A private dance class allows the teacher to focus on the skills and needs of the dancer. We tailor private lessons to developing the dancers' skills in social, communication and gross motor, as well as developing a foundation for dance. Your family and dancer can choose the style of class: lyrical, ballet, jazz, tap, tumbling, yoga or creative movement. If there is no known preference, an exploration of various styles occurs over two classes.
