SPECIAL NEEDS - CLASSES & FUN
At the Steffi Nossen School of Dance everyone can dance. People with special needs have their own classes to experience the joy of dance or be mainstreamed as appropriate. In Moving Wheels & Heels adaptive dance for stand-ups and sit-downs, selected “Best of Westchester” by Westchester Magazine, participants learn technique, improve focus, balance, and range of motion, and enjoy a social experience in a warm, supportive atmosphere. Most classes have live music, and typical siblings are encouraged to participate. Check out adaptive dance camps for kids age 4 and older.
