Special Needs Arts Program (S.N.A.P.!)
Ten week, creatively themed, Saturday sessions in the fall and spring allow students in our three age groups - Shining Stars (ages 7-11), All Stars (ages 12 to 17), and Super Stars (alumni over 18) to experience dancing, singing, and acting, in a fun, safe, and creative environment. With the assistance of assigned high school buddies, the students learn a number of songs, dances, and acting activities to present to family and friends at the end of each session in an informal but eagerly anticipated showcase. Great friendships have been made and our program continues to foster tremendous growth in both our students and our buddies. The program is taught by a dedicated faculty with a wealth of experience in all aspects of musical theater as well as an occupational therapist with a background in dance.
Learning new songs each session, along with our theme song, "It's a SNAP!" gives our students an opportunity to bring some of their favorites to the "stage".
From Hip Hop, Ballet, Line Dancing, Jazz, and Swing, we've done it all! We continue to explore in creative ways, to enhance the confidence and physical abilities of our students.
When it comes to self expression, the sky's the limit! Each session brings out something new from our extraordinarily talented students.
In addition to our Saturday sessions, S.N.A.P.! Dance! is an ongoing dance class offered to special needs students, ages 16 and up, to explore Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet, and fitness. This is a fun-filled, hour-long class held on Wednesday evenings.
