Classes and Programs
Unbound provides dance classes and performance opportunities for all kinds of people - differently-abled, young and old. Classes may be held at Unbound’s home base at Mid-Maryland Performing Arts Center (MMPAC) in Frederick, MD, or they may be held on-site in other organization’s facilities. In every situation, classes are led by professionally trained instructors who work with the abilities of each individual to ensure meaningful, life-affirming experiences. People who have benefited from Unbound’s programs in the past include those with spina bifida, downs syndrome, cerebral palsy, autism, and add/adhd, as well as senior citizens.
Many students with different abilities are successfully integrated into existing classes at Mid-Maryland Performing Arts Center’s state-of-the-art dance studios. These classes offer an exciting learning opportunity where all of the students come to understand differences, compassion, and ways of working together. Unbound students in these classes are encouraged to participate in MMPAC’s year-end performance.
Unbound develops specialized classes for specific groups of individuals who have similar needs. Using a variety of music, props, and movement games, the joy of dance can be made available to these students. These classes also take place at Mid-Maryland Performing Arts Center’s dance studios.
Unbound also develops customized outreach programs for such organizations as schools, group homes, and assisted living facilities. Unbound makes site-visits and offers personalized evaluations in order to create suitable programs for particular populations. Unbound instructors will travel to your facility to bring the joy of dance to your students or residents.
In Unbound’s outreach activities, there are two ways for students to benefit from dance performances. Instructors can tailor a program so that a session of classes culminates in an informal sharing of dance with other students or residents. Unbound can also bring an exhilarating dance performance to your facility where everyone can enjoy the excitement of movement.
