New YouTube Channel for Adapted Dances

These are a combination of folk dances as well as newly created dances, adapted to the needs of people with intellectual disabilities. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqsOS21sqQlHj6xDxu1U_nQ

The impetus for this YouTube channel is to share dance adaptations that facilitate the participation of people with different abilities in dance. Our program, called Move N’ Mingle, focuses on a diverse group of people with intellectual disabilities. We’ve been dancing together for the past 10+ years, at the Prosserman Jewish Community Centre in Toronto Canada. We do a combination of folk dances and original choreographies. For us, dance is a social activity and each participant dances at their own level. Using dance as a vehicle, our group has developed into a joyful and cohesive community. Do you have questions or a dance to share?
