New Haven Miracle League Dance at Yale

The "Everybody Dance Now!" program, in partnership with the Miracle League of CT, will be hosted at Yale for the second time starting Sunday, 1/19. This fun, adaptive dance program is designed to allow all children to express themselves according to their own abilities and interests through the art of dance. We accept children ages 5-21 with any intellectual, developmental, or physical disabilities that may make it difficult for them to fully engage in a traditional dance class setting. Absolutely no dance experience needed! Rather than teaching complex steps or a specific technique such as ballet, the dance will be a mix of styles and the music and movements will be adjusted to what the children are enjoying the most. Each dancer will be paired with a one-on-one Yale student buddy for the duration of the program, and classes will be a combination of fun games, creative exercises, and learning some basic choreography. All this will wrap up with an informal performance on 3/1 for the children to show off their new moves!

Classes will run for 7 weeks, on Sunday mornings from 1/19-3/1 at 10-10:45 a.m. They will be held in Yale's Payne Whitney Gymnasium, and free parking will be provided. Even if you missed the first class on 1/19, it is totally okay to still join!
