What's Included

"Inaugurated in 2004, Music and Motion provides disabled dancers the opportunity to experience the beauty of moving to music, the fun and excitement of dance, and the discipline of challenging oneself to achieve.  The program is the innovation of MYB’s Jennifer Cox, a 30- year dance professional, and Rebecca Leonard, a licensed physical therapist specializing in pediatric physical therapy. Inspired by her own granddaughter’s desire to dance despite disabilities, Mrs. Cox developed the program to allow the children to enjoy the beauty of music and motion, and gain the benefits of the physical therapy." For children who require assistance to walk or are wheelchair bound.

About This Organizer

Since 1971, the mission of MYB has been to provide the highest caliber of training and performance opportunities to young dancers in order to prepare them for a career in the performing arts as well as to provide classes to dancers of all ages and levels in the community.

 

MYB’s children’s program puts deliberate emphasis on pre-professional achievement with each level carefully crafted to provide the most comprehensive training and coaching in order to produce the high quality dancer that MYB is known for.

 

MYB’s adult program, spanning levels from basic beginner through advanced, enjoys the same faculty as the children’s program, offering our adults the finest teachers of ballet, stretch, and classical core conditioning in the region.

 

MYB also provides the community with professional quality performances exposing the area to the art of ballet.  In addition, MYB’s outreach program makes ballet available to the community’s under-served and disadvantaged children allowing all to experience the joy of dance.
