National Dance Institute (NDI) has announced new national online programming for children with disabilities. The program, part of NDI’s renowned DREAM Project, is the first of its kind to offer a fully inclusive format that connects dancers of all abilities with one another from their homes. The DREAM (Dancers Realize Excellence through Arts and Movement) Project@Home will include a series of 30-minute classes within a 5-week cycle for children of all abilities, age 6 and beyond.
DREAM Project@Home classes focus on introducing the NDI style of dance class to children with a wide variety of abilities. The program culminates in a performance celebrating every student’s talents and achievements.
Children with disabilities and a group of age-matched, non-disabled peers dance in partnership, with the goals of maximizing participation and challenging every dancer to achieve their best through teamwork, creativity, empathy, and discovery. Students of all abilities can participate free of charge in DREAM Project@Home.
WHEN: Tuesdays, 4 pm EST through August 31
ndiLIVE! classes premiere on NDI’s Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube channel. Videos will also be available after they have premiered. Watch on YouTube to view with closed captioning.
