As featured in our latest newsletter (www.claust.com.au/forms-publications): the team at Mt Barker Day Options have been loving their weekly dance classes with AACD, with the long-term goal of performing their new routines for a live audience soon.
The weekly sessions, while great fun and awesome exercise, are helping to improve balance, strength and coordination while increasing people’s social skills and confidence.
While some participants are natural and vibrant performers, it has been great to witness other more introverted people really come out of their shell.
AACD launched in 2020 to offer inclusive dance classes for people with all types of disabilities.
They run a variety of programs and are affiliated with Special Olympics Australia.
Feedback from our participants has been overwhelmingly positive with the session becoming a firm favourite for many.
