About Inclusive Dance
The Louisville Ballet School’s Inclusive Dance Program offers ballet classes open to dancers of all abilities and needs. Trained instructors utilize a variety of instructional techniques and accommodations within the studio to ensure that all students receive the highest quality instruction.
Inclusive Dance offerings are designed to benefit each and every student as inclusion has shown benefits in social and communication skills as well as fostering an environment of acceptance and kindness for every child.
A strong education in dance has shown a variety of positive impacts on students across all populations by encouraging:
- Movement, creative activity, and sensory awareness
- Positive self image
- Fine and gross motor development
- Sensory, visual, and auditory processing skills
- Established routines and managing transitions
- Attention, cooperation, and impulse control
- Exploration, self-expression
