MixMo Adaptive Dance Programs
For those of you with family members who have special needs, specifically a family member with Down Syndrome, Autism, or who uses a wheelchair, make sure to check out the upcoming MixMo class programs through Todd Rosenlieb Dance. Upcoming sessions begin in February 2021.
Description: The first of its kind in the region, Mixed Abilities in Motion (MixMo) was conceived when a parent shared a heartfelt desire – that her child, born with Down Syndrome, have the opportunity to experience dance. Now in its 10th year, MixMo has expanded beyond its first Adaptive Dance Class for children and adults with Down Syndrome to include Movin’ and Groovin’ with Autism Spectrum Disorder and The Wholly Rollers at TRDance, a new MIXMO program for dancers with wheelchairs.
Our classes are structured to involve a combination of ballet technique and creative movement along with classical ballet music and interactive songs. We also incorporate live music from a professional drummer (bongos) in classes to expose students to percussive sound while maintaining the unique ability to respond to the sensory needs of our students.
MIXMO dancers receive the opportunity to attend live theatre and dance performances in the community as well as perform, alongside such noted artists and organizations as the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Todd Rosenlieb Dance Company, and Virginia Ballet Theatre.
