Jeté Dance Company is excited to introduce – JDC Jewels
An Adaptive Dance Class where Impossible is an Opinion
As a studio, Jeté Dance Company aspires to include any and every dancer regardless of his/her ability. This year we are so excited to have the opportunity to add dance classes adapted to the special needs of children with cognitive, physical, or social challenges to our schedule. In these classes, JDC Jewels will explore creative movement through ballet and tap and teamwork through partnering.
These classes will be offered for dancers ages 5-10 years old on Saturdays for 50 minutes to an hour each week. There will be two sessions offered – fall and spring. The JDC Jewels Fall Session will begin Saturday, September 12 and end Saturday, November 21. The Spring Session will begin Saturday, January 23 and end with JDC’s Annual Recital held Saturday, May 15 and Sunday, May 16.
The classes will be led by Associate Teachers, Kaitlyn Odell and Caitlin Malone. Each dancer will be paired with their very own Gem – a Jeté Dance Company Associate Teacher or Demonstrator that has been through workshops geared toward preparation for classes. The same Gem will aide your dancer each week.
As we begin to set class times and sizes, we ask parents/guardians of dancers interested in participating to contact Jeté with any special needs your dancer may require making sure we pair your dancer appropriately with well-prepared Gems. We strive to give each dancer their best opportunity to dance with others and enjoy themselves no matter the challenges they face. By providing their various needs, we will be able to pair them with the best suited Gem.
Parents/guardians should contact Jeté Dance Company via email at JDCJewels@jetedancecompany.com or call the front desk at (225) 673-5466.
We are so excited to continue to help young dancers grow and shine! We hope to have you join our JDC Jewels Family!
Thank you and always remember – Impossible is an Opinion
