Free Dance and Music Classes for Children with Disabilities


Following the enthusiastic reception to last spring’s dance classes for children with
disabilities, Segerstrom Center for the Arts will hold two additional dance and music classes on Friday, November 11th. The classes are free and have been developed for children with special needs such as those who are visually impaired, have autism, cerebral palsy, Downs Syndrome or other complex needs.

These classes combine dance, movement and music with plenty of sensory experiences to ensure that children have fun while exercising and improving balance, coordination, and confidence through personal and social growth. The 10 a.m. session will be for children 4-6 years of age and the 3:30 p.m. session will be for 7-12 year-olds.


Both are 45 minutes to an hour in length and will be held in one of the Center’s dance studios. The teaching teams include an experienced dance teacher, a licensed physical or occupational therapist and a professional musician. The environment is relaxed and informal, so children should wear clothes that are comfortable for moving about. Each child must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, who will have this time to relax and enjoy the class.


For more information about these workshops for children with disabilities, contact Susan Marie
Kendall in the Center’s Community Engagement Department at [email protected] or 714.556.2122,4337.
