DPT students and alumni volunteer with Dancing Above the Barre program
Elon DPT students and alumni, including Jennifer Evans, Dana Tishler, Blair Madden, Natalie Maness, Judy Saas and Morgan Mason, are regular volunteers with the Greensboro Ballet's Dancing Above the Barre program.
The program provides an opportunity for young children with disabilities to build their self-confidence, strengthen their bodies, create new friendships and to live out a dream: the chance to be a dancer. Participants take dance classes for seven weeks and the program culminates in a recital. The dance program is created specifically for young children with physical disabilities. Each position or movement has modified versions available depending on the child’s abilities and needs.
