Enriching the lives of individuals with intellectual disabilities through dance! Through special classes that utilize repetition and patient modeling of movements, people with mental disabilities are taught choreographed routines. We currently have classes operating in the Bearden area of Knoxville, Fountain City, Powell, Jefferson City, and Harrogate. In addition, more classes are about to start in Oak Ridge, Maryville and Jamestown, and possibly in the Karnes area.
Therapeutic benefits include increased self-esteem, improved social skills, improved muscle coordination, controlling weight, learning to follow instructions, and expansion of communication skills. Public performances help the dancers gain confidence and increase their self-esteem, while at the same time raising the public’s awareness of the beautiful gifts these individuals bring to our society.
If you are interested in a class, please call Lurley Noe at 865-219-8697 or 865-384-6156, or you may use e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
