ANYONE CAN DANCEĀ®: Sit down and move!
This program takes you from movement and breathing seated in a chair to standing supported behind a chair, to moving across the floor when possible. We travel the world, from ballet to hip hop, from Big Band to Doo Wop, and use the body for energy and relaxation. Wheelchairs, walkers and feet are welcome!
