Houston Ballet is excited to partner with the Down Syndrome Association of Houston and Easter Seals of Greater Houston to offer Adapted Dance, a series of FREE dance classes for children with Down syndrome ages 5-12. Modeled on a successful program at Boston Ballet, Adapted Dance is a dance class that emphasizes strength, flexibility and balance while encouraging creative expression and teamwork. Classes will have live percussion accompaniment and be held at Houston Ballet's brand new Center for Dance downtown.
Please contact the Down Syndrome Association of Houston for class availability.
Classes will be held in the first floor Brown Studio at Houston Ballet Center for Dance, 601 Preston Street, Houston, TX, 77002.

Girls: Sleeveless, scooped neck, solid colored tank-styled leotard, and black bike shorts. Hair pulled back neatly away from the face. No jewelry or skirts.
Boys: Short-sleeved, solid white t-shirt, and black bike shorts.
