girl scouts of eastern ma
We are a community partner with Girl Scouts of Eastern MA. We teach dancer badge workshops across their different campgrounds in Waltham and Andover. We always have girl-led Q&As about disability culture and entrepreneurship. We show kids early on the value of inclusion in the hopes that they will take these lessons and apply them in their classrooms, troop meetings, and everywhere they go throughout their life.
We have an ongoing workshop series with Gateway Arts, a non-profit studio for adult artists with disabilities. We teach movement and music and discuss well as what it is like to be a professional artist/dancer with a disability. Through this ongoing series, we strive to reach a broader audience for adult artists with disabilities and further promote our mission of increasing inclusion in dance for folks with disabilities.
