Schwartz Center, N.B. Ballet offer program

Posted 1/3/14

DARTMOUTH – The Schwartz Center for Children and New Bedford Ballet are offering “Partners in Dance,” a program for children with developmental challenges, from Jan. 9 through Feb. 13.

The program is an adaptive dance class that partners the children with their typically developing peers, relatives, or teachers. The class is held Thursdays from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Schwartz Center.

Directing the class is Rebecca Waskiel-Marchesseault, artistic director of New Bedford Ballet, with assistance from Mr. James Brown, master ballet instructor at New Bedford Ballet, and staff members from the Schwartz Center. Students with developmental challenges explore the world of dance and creative movement in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.

Each class includes a unique theme, around which a warm-up, creative movement and a craft activity are based. Each child will be partnered with their sibling, a relative, a peer, or an adult, and together they will share an experience designed to foster creativity and self-esteem.

The Schwartz Center has been serving children with a variety of special medical and developmental needs in Southeastern Massachusetts since 1947. For more information visit schwartzcenter.org

Founded in 1987, the New Bedford Ballet Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and present classical and contemporary ballets, grant scholarships, and educate the community in the value of the performing arts. For more information, contact the New Bedford Ballet at 508-993-1387 or visit newbedfordballet.org.
