*DiversAbility
DiverseAbility classes are specifically geared toward individuals who have sometimes unique and diverse physical and cognitive needs and supports. A more commonly known term would "disability" or "special needs". However, our goal is the desegregation of the classroom environment so we welcome people of all different abilities - neurotypical and non-neurotypical, differently-abled and able-bodied - to join any of our DiverseAbility classes! We partner with Special Olympics Dance Maryland every summer and all DiverseAbility class goers have the opportunity to apply to be in the performance group that participates in a concert every year at Towson University for the Special Olympic Maryland Summer Games!
