Today I want to write about something that has been a passion of mine for quite some time - giving individuals with autism and related disabilities the opportunity to perform and SHINE. This is top of mind because I've been rehearsing for a holiday program with the preschoolers at Amazing Kids Club, an awesome therapeutic [...]

Winter Session Ideas for Middle & High School Students

2023-12-01T15:59:01+00:00November 30th, 2023|

The temperature is dropping here in Pennsylvania, Thanksgiving is behind us, and I am ready to bust out ALL the winter musical experiences in my sessions. I'm thinking creative movement, freeze dancing (of course), and creative listening to winter-themed classical music.
