Every Child Deserves a Chance to Play
Everybody Dance Now
The Miracle League of CT is thrilled to offer a new adaptive dance program. Any child can express themselves through the art of dance. Adaptive dance is designed to include everyone who wants to participate and to utilize their unique individual abilities to their fullest. The program will include boys and girls of all abilities ages 4-11 in our Junior Troupe and ages 12-21 in our Senior Troupe. The style of dance will be expressive/jazz/modern - not ballet. The style will be adapted to each child's abilities and interests. The program will be offered in 2 different locations this spring! Choose the link below to register for the program that best fits your location and schedule.

The program will be offered in the Hartford area in collaboration with the Ballet Theatre Company which is located at 20 Jefferson St. in West Hartford (just off of New Park Ave near Home Depot). Everybody Dance Now in West Hartford will meet on Sundays at 11am-11:45am each week beginning on February 24th. The program will run for 8 weeks and will culminate in a Live Dance Showcase at the end of the program for the dancer's families, friends and fans.
EVERYBODY DANCE NOW SOUTHEASTERN CT

(click on the Studio 22 logo to learn more about them)
Additionaly, the program will be in Southeastern CT in collaboration with Studio 22 Dance located at 135 Boston Post Road in East Lyme. The 8 week program will take place on Saturday mornings beginning on March 23rd and ending on May 18th (there will not be classes on Saturday April 20th). We will have Live Dance Showcase for our new dancers to show off all that they have learned on May 18th.
We need your help in order to make this program successful. Ideally we will have a volunteer helper for each of our dancers to help them as much or as little as needed. The volunteers will also participate in the Dancer Showcase alongside their dancers during the final week. Their truly is no requirement that you are good dancer. All you need is some empathy and a willingness to help children with special needs to express themselves through dance. Volunteers must be 14 years old, and should be available for the full 8 week run of the progam. We need volunteers at both of our locations in Central CT and Southeastern CT. Please click on the link below to register as a volunteer.
The goal of the Miracle League of CT is to remove all barriers that prevent children with special needs from participating in recreational, educational and cultural activities. If one of those barriers is a financial one, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request a fee waiver for any of our programs. We will do our best to accommodate your request which will be kept strictly confidential.
