At Arts Inspired Dance Academy, we take pride in providing classes for students of all ages and abilities.  GROOVEWORKS Shining Stars is designed to give students with Autism, Downs Syndrome, Sensory Processing and other special learning needs a safe place to grow and have fun.  The perfect blend of dance, rhythm and fun, designed to engage students with games, upbeat music and movement designed to promote independence, and growth across the 5 developmental domains.  

While we welcome students of differing learning needs in all of our classes, we recognize that some students require specialized planning and accommodations to enjoy the same opportunities as their peers.  GROOVEWORKS Shining Stars is designed to provide our Shining Stars the chance to learn and thrive in an environment that can embrace their special qualities.  

Our specially designed dance room provides students a safe environment with limited distractions and an attached quiet room to decompress as needed.  

Students are encouraged to bring a parent, friend or other "buddy" to attend class free of charge.  

Our Rhythm Works Certified Instructor will work closely with parents, schools and clinics to provide a fun, upbeat supplement to current therapy.
