Beginner Movement (all ages) Term 3, 2021
Seniors (ages 13+ years) Term 2 + 3, 2021

Perform-Ability is Australia’s fastest growing performing arts program for people of all ages with disabilities. Each class is tailored to suit the abilities of the students in the class. Dance is a wonderful way to gain confidence and make friends. For less mobile students, our dance classes are a great way for physical therapy to be incorporated in a fun and musical environment. Dance is also great for the mind as the students are encouraged to remember routines using imagery, muscle memory and music. Although our disability dance classes are full of fun and games, we understand that discipline is also an important skill and this is gently implemented into all of our programs. With the release of the Dance For Inclusion™️ training program, Alana is the first and only qualified instructor in South Australia!
