“Dance has been a great experience for me. It has helped me to focus and relax my mind. It helps me with my creativity and is a lot of fun too! Dance has helped me improve my concentration to be able to get assignments and homework done quicker so my mind can be at ease.

Dancing has been a great help for my Autism brain because it helps me calm down. It’s MUCH better and easier than having to remember stuff for a quiz or test because it’s more fun. I have made many new friends because of dance. My dance family is very supportive of me, and proud of me as well!”
