I had the pleasure of volunteering with the Shooting Stars dance class, a dance class for children with special needs. This class provides the opportunity for children to participate in a fun activity they otherwise may not have the chance to do. With the support of Seamless Dance Theater, the class can participate in dance competitions and recitals and attend dance class every week at no cost. Helping with the Shooting Stars dance class provided an opportunity for children with special needs to dance, as well as enriched my learning experience as an occupational therapy student. Thanks to the Seamless Dance Theater for funding the class!
I am an Occupational Therapy student from KUMed, and I have been given the opportunity to volunteer through Seamless Dance Theater working with a class for children with special needs. The class is free and open to individuals looking for an opportunity to dance. Seamless has provided a dance studio and teacher to support this service learning experience. It has been incredible and we could not have put this class together without their support. The class not only benefits my learning experience but provides a safe and encouraging environment for children with special needs to dance. The smiles one can see around the room tell all- the children are thrilled to be there! It is truly a blessing to be able to work in this environment.
I participated in this dance class as a service learning opportunity for school. It was a great chance to work with other volunteers to help children with special needs participate in a fun activity, dancing. It was great that Seamless Dance Theater sponsored this activity by providing a free studio space, volunteer dance teachers and assistance, and giving us a chance to participate in a fun service learning activity to gain experience.
Thanks Seamless Dance Theater!
