All About Darby's Dancers Special Needs Class at UDA
Darby’s Dancers is a non-profit organization founded by the parents of Darby Jones of Huntsville, Alabama which is designed for children with physical or developmental disabilities such as down syndrome, (ASD) autism spectrum disorder, cerebral palsy, and other developmental delays (including those requiring use of a wheelchair).
The goal of this class is to enrich the lives these children through performing arts participation; providing an opportunity for increased confidence, coordination, strength and relationships in a safe and structured environment.
Darby’s Dancers provides a volunteer opportunity for teens to serve as a “buddy”, providing one-on-one assistance to a special needs dancer. Through charitable contributions of youth volunteers, the Darby’s Dancers director, Utah Dance Artists and local businesses, this program is able to provide dance classes, supplies and costumes to special needs dancers at no cost to their parents.
