Therapeutic Dance Program
The Therapeutic Dance Program at The Center for Discovery encourages individuals to explore, discover and embrace the world of dance. Highly trained dance therapists and educators use movement as a powerful tool to promote mental, physical and emotional health and well being. The program allows individuals to express themselves through non-verbal means of communication. Therapeutic Dance also improves balance, physical mobility, memory, coordination and motor planning. Through dance experiences in the four components of the program (Dance Therapy, Adapted Dance, Dance Education and Creative Movement), individuals learn expressiveness and creativity and build the confidence needed for relationships within the community. Individuals participating in the Therapeutic Dance Program have showcased their talents in holiday concerts, spring shows and community events. The Therapeutic Dance Program staff also oversees The Center for Discovery Cheerleading Squad and Zumba Intensives.
