Adaptive Hip Hop

What is Adaptive Hip Hop? We are thrilled to be adding a brand new class to our program beginning this summer. Taught by Charmin Wray, Adaptive Hip Hop will be specifically designed for dancers who are ages 14 and up with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) and those considered neurodivergent. Dancers will explore the fundamentals of Hip Hop and Jazz as they warm up, develop, explore, create, and cool down during this fun and upbeat class! 

How can I determine if this class is right for my dancer? At this time, we cannot accommodate behavior that is disruptive or aggressive towards oneself or others. Caregiver attendance with dancers is optional. Individual Education Plan, Emerging Social/Emotional, and ongoing Academic Goals can be incorporated into the dance curriculum. We invite all families who are interested to reach out to us with questions about this brand new class! 

When will Adaptive Hip Hop be offered? There will be a three week session of Adaptive Hip Hop during our 2023 Summer Session! Join us on Saturday, from 11:45-12:30pm. We hope to continue to offer Adaptive Hip Hop on Saturdays during our 2023-2024 School Year Session. 

How do I register? Registration will open on Tuesday, 5/9, at 11:00am! Please fill out the form below and create a CDS Portal Account. Once you have created your account, click on "Register for Classes", choose the Summer Classes tab, and select "Adaptive Hip Hop". You will then be able to register your dancer for one, two, or all three of the classes being offered during the three week Summer Session.

What is the Dress Code? We recommend that dancers wear clothes that they can easily move in and are comfortable in, clean indoor tennis shoes, and have hair pulled back from the face.  Questions about the dress code? Please do not hesitate to reach out to us so that we can ensure that your dancer is comfortable. 

Tuition information: Tuition for Adaptive Hip Hop is calculated per class. Each class 45 minutes class is $18 per dancer. 

Our goal to ensure that every family interested in dance can participate regardless of financial concerns, and we joyfully offer scholarship opportunities. To apply for a dance scholarship, please email
