Joy in Motion


Joy in Motion is a creative movement class designed specifically for children with special needs that are in kindergarten through fifth grade. Instruction will focus on developing both fine and gross motor skills through music, allowing the body and mind to work together.

The instructor, Yvonne Miller, has experience in both special needs children and dance instruction. She currently works at Graham Elementary in the multiple handicap unit, and for several years was a one-on-one paraprofessional and teacher's aide. She previously worked for the Urbana Autism Unit. Ms Von has been involved at CSA for over ten years and currently teaches Mini and Creative Movement classes.

Each session of Joy in Motion will consist of six 30-minute classes held on Monday evening. Two time slots are available for each session.

Cost is $60.00 per session. Fee must be paid in full in advance; there are no refunds.

If you have questions or would like to sign up for Joy in Motion, please contact Ms Von at 937.620.9170 or samd3030@gmail.com. Ms Von will meet with you and your dancer prior to the beginning of the session to discuss any special needs. At that time you can fill out the application/consent form for your child to participate.
