Dance for ALL!

About the Project

Last year we welcomed a new teacher and two new physical therapists to the Music & Motion team and the dancers took on some exciting choreography for their fall performance of "The Snowman" (see video above). This year one lucky Music & Motion dancer will be performing in The Nutcracker! Whether renewing your donation or giving for the first time, your support will help this remarkable program continue to thrive year after year. Please consider Music & Motion for your year-end giving.  

ABOUT MUSIC & MOTION
MYB’s Music & Motion program offers therapeutic dance instruction to young children with physical disabilities. The Music & Motion classes which began in 2004, provide children with special needs the opportunity to experience dance in a safe and accepting environment. They are able to express themselves while moving to music and achieve movements most children take for granted. In 2007, MYB installed a custom-designed overhead track system, the first of its kind, which allows each child to be suspended with the aid of a vest sling attached to a transverse rail system hung from above the ceiling, thereby giving the dancers complete range of motion. The Music & Motion program offers physical, emotional, and mental benefits to the students and families that exceed many of the traditional therapies available.   

WHY MUSIC & MOTION NEEDS YOU
Your Donation will directly support the Music & Motion program, which is considerably more costly than our average academy classes. Tuition alone covers less than half of the cost of staffing each class with a licensed pediatric physical therapist, a specially trained ballet teacher, and a pianist. In addition, MYB must cover the cost to maintain the overhead track system by bringing in a specially trained medical equipment systems company to inspect the bracing and supports located above the 16’ ceiling.  

Your support will make a difference. Help us raise $10,000 for Music and Motion. Please Donate Today!
