|About||Free to be Me is a fun, friendly, safe, and nonjudgmental place for students with special needs to learn and love dance.|
We are a Special needs dance class for students ages 5 - 21. Class is structured by 25 minutes of tumbling with a 5 minute snack and water break, and then 30 minutes of dance. Dance is focused in jazz. Boys and Girls are both accepted.
Classes are carefully & specifically designed for children with Special Needs. This includes behavioral, social, mental, physical and developmental challenges. We previously have had students with SPD, OCD, ADHD, CP, hearing and visual impairments, and chromosome disorder. We will do our best to meet any accommodations the student may have in order to help them participate to the best of their abilities.
We have a peer coaching approach utilizing dancers from local studios. They will be dancing & performing with the students. These peers help encourage and guide students through movements. All classes are held at Brandy's Mystical Inspiration Dance Studio, located in East Peoria. Students will perform a tumbling/dance routine at Brandy's Mystical Inspiration Dance Studio annual spring recital.
