Special Pirouettes: 2017 – 2018 Season

Ages 5 – 9.

The Special Pirouettes Program is designed to ignite the love of dance through the introduction to ballet technique, musical calisthenics, creativity, teamwork and play for our young students with special needs including Autism, Down Syndrome, Intellectual Disabilities and other developmental delays. Our mission is to enrich their lives and help them achieve new possibilities and milestones previously unimaginable.

Special Pirouettes is a ballet-based program for students age 5-9. All faculty members are classically trained and will guide students in foundational classes such as pre-ballet and pre-jazz. Students are scheduled into this program according to age.
