Dance Your Dreams on WHNT!

We are SO excited to share this link to a wonderful piece by Robert Reeves at WHNT Channel 19 here in Huntsville! They came to our "Dance Your Dreams!" ballet class last week and filmed this great segment!

"Dance Your Dreams!" is our weekly class for children who have gross motor developmental delays, who cannot participate in mainstream dance classes. They come to class every week, taught by our Director of Dance Education Hayley Smith, and learn choreography with their friends. Each child receives one dance outfit, and is able to attend the class free of charge.

As we are a nonprofit organization, major funding for this program is provided by the Jane K. Lowe Charitable Foundation. If you are interested in volunteering, donating, or enrolling your child, please contact Hayley at
