The benefits of dance therapy include: healthy non-verbal outlets for emotions, memory retention and application, muscle strengthening, flexibility, and overall health and endurance.
Dance classes at Backlight incorporate basic aerobic warm-ups and stretching to encourage bodily health and safety with beginner dance moves and combinations in various styles and routines. Students are challenged and progressed according to each one’s personal level with curriculum being designed weekly to meet and focus on the specific needs of the participants. Varying movements are taught through creative learning techniques and individual expression is encouraged and considered in all choreography.
Dance classes are currently incorporated into our theater program curriculum.
