“We have hired a specialist to teach this class, and as a matter of fact, she was one of our instructors,” Vorburger said. “In the past she has done some camps for kids with a variety of disabilities. It was just by happenstance that she was with us already, but it is a good fit.”
Meyers-Winkler said children with Down syndrome won't have much trouble learning the basics of ballet and dance.
“They will face the same challenges other kids will face,” Meyers-Winkler said. “Our kids are like anyone else. They go to typical classrooms at their schools, they like music and they like to move around.”
