Adaptive & Inclusive Dance Teacher Professional Training by Dancin Power - Summer 2017
Get trained by Dancin Power, the organization that developed the first IN-hospital Adaptive & Inclusive designed dance teaching program method in the United States.

Other areas where our approach and method have been successfully applied:
- Hospitals & hospices
- Homeless shelters for survivors of domestic violence
- Programs serving children on the autism spectrum
- Memory care assisted living
- Programs serving refugee children & youth
