I see two Adaptive Dance Summer Camps. What is the difference between the two?


Thanks to the support from the Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation and the Montana Council on Developmental Disabilities, Cohesion Dance Project has been able to partner with Keshet Dance Company to offer two unique Adaptive summer camps.

KDC Adaptive - All Abilties Ages 6+ is an hour long camp perfect for anyone looking for an introduction to Adaptive Dance. Participants will work with Keshet Dance Company and have an opportunity to perform an original piece on Friday, July 12.

Dance and Arts for Disabilities is designed for youth ages 7-18 exploring creative movement and artistic expression in a fun and supportive environment. This two-hour class is ideal for participants who want to expand on movement they have built in Adaptive Dance or explore different art forms. Participants will have an opportunity to perform an original piece on Friday, July 12 alongside Keshet Dance Company.
