Inspirations Dance Academy at Absolute!
Inspirations Dance Academy is an adaptive dance company that offers dance classes to people with special needs. We have classes at several locations throughout Northeast Ohio, and we are EXTREMELY excited to be partnering with Absolute Dance Company to offer our classes here as well!
Our goal is to give everyone the opportunity to enjoy dance. I use my knowledge and experience as a physical therapist to design programming that helps each dancer achieve their highest potential. We provide a special opportunity for kids with special needs to experience dance like every other child. They get to build self-esteem and make friends while also building strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, and much more.
There will be opportunities for students at Absolute Dance Company to volunteer and partner up with our dancers with special needs! This is a very cool opportunity for kids to learn acceptance, make a difference in another kid's life, and make lifelong friendships. Dancers who are interested in helping out can email me! Our summer classes and camps have been added to the Absolute summer schedule.
One of the things I value most about my daughters growing up at Absolute Dance Company is the loving and supportive atmosphere that starts from the top down. It is the perfect fit for my dancers and their families, and I am so excited for everyone to meet them!
