"The KPD dance program gives the children a program that does not mandate perfection because of mental or physical challenges. It builds their confidence and social skills as well as finding an outlet of acceptance regardless of their disability. They are actually having fun while working hard. This program is pleasurable and productive for the child who regularly has to attend occupational and physical therapy to achieve the same results. My daughter's social skills, attitude, self confidence, visual motor and physical skills have improved and she dances everywhere she goes. It is an incredible program for the special needs kids without the pressure to achieve unobtainable physical and mental goals expected in a regular dance class. The program is truly a beautiful experience for my daughter and her friend, Gabi who suffers from Cerebral Palsy." Sendi Goss, mother of Shay Goss


Children with developmental and physical special needs are invited to participate in this dance and
performance workshop creating together towards a performance for families and friends
