Dance-Movement Group - Dancing Wheels
This group is for children who use wheelchairs and would like to move and dance. Children will creatively explore various movements using their own abilities and connect with others through the use of props (e.g. parachute, elastic band). They may explore the space, distance and proximity between other children. Through movement, children may discover their possibilities, capabilities and a new wholeself. Children may gain more self-confidence and learn to socially interact with other children. The group will create a sense of community as wheelchair users and provide a space for them to understand about themselves and others better and more positively. It aims to meet, grow and become friends with others.
