We are delighted to welcome back Rebecca from Free 2 Be Me Dance for a new term in The Down Syndrome Centre.

The Class

Free 2 Be Me Dance Dublin is an adaptive dance program designed for children and young adults with Additional Needs.

Through careful guidance and lots of attention in the classes, the children learn dance movements, coordination, and how to follow directions. It is a chance for the dancers to feel accepted all the while having fun, building confidence, strength, and forming meaningful relationships with their fellow dancers as well as with their teacher and teachers helpers, their “Ballet Buddies“.

Who is it suitable for?

Places are available for new term which is open to boys and girls aged 3 – 12 years.

To book your child in or to make an enquiry please contact Rebecca directly at dublincityballetschool@gmail.com or on 086 412 4982
