The American Autism Association has teamed up with Ballet for all Kids to bring New York City our first ever ballet class for children with special needs. The Ballet for All Kids programs offers a very special technique to foster each child’s unique abilities in order to learn new skills and the classic techniques of ballet. By using the Schlachte Method, they accommodate all different styles of learning for unique individuals, including visual, auditory, vestibular, and emotional intelligence. These classes and the special setting including a trained, passionate faculty combined with the art of ballet therapy can help individuals gain self-confidence, friendships, self-discipline, and the joy of movement. Program times and days vary depending on the time of year. If you are interested in applying, please refer to our events page for any upcoming programs and application information.
