Event Details

Oglebay Institute’s School of Dance will host a free Adaptive Dance Workshop 4-7pm Friday, April 6 at the dance studios.

Presented by Todd Rosenlieb of TRDance Center in Norfolk, Virginia, the workshop is designed to help therapists, teachers, aides and administrators expand the abilities of students with Down Syndrome and other disabilities.

During the workshop, we’ll explore how to understand a child’s physical abilities, cognitive level, communication skills and emotional drive. Concepts and techniques to expand the capabilities to work with children of differing abilities will be introduced. A series of community building and leadership skill development exercises are also part of the workshop which may qualify as a continuing education class.

Workshop is free and open to therapists, teachers, aides and administrators from area agencies and schools.

Pre-register online or call 304-242-7700. For questions, please call 304-242-8807 or email School of Dance director Cheryl Pompeo.

Presented with support from Brian and Shelley Dawes.
