IFDA Special Need Peer Interaction Class
The class focuses on social interaction and movement coordination through Bollywood music. The goal of this class is to increase coordination, rhythm sense, spacial concept while appropriate turn taking, communication and interaction with peers is also facilitated. The peers are mostly middle school and high school volunteers who play as role models in initiating appropriate social communication. The program works based on a one on one buddy system thereby increasing confidence, self esteem and promoting awareness and friendship. This year we will be introducing some classical dance elements to enable emotional expression. The class is lead by two instructors who are trained classical/professional dancers/choreographers and are both trained in ABA techniques and have special need children of their own.
