13 - Ballet for Me! (Horizontal).jpg

Some of our most treasured values here at SDCYB are that “everybody has the opportunity to dance” and we “embrace and celebrate the diversity of our students.”  It is with those thoughts in mind that we are proud to offer our third semester of our Ballet for Me! program.  Taught by Miss Kerri, this is an 8-week, tuition-waived classical ballet class designed specifically for children ages 7 to 12 with unique physical needs.

MISS KERRI: "I remember the feeling I had when my legs were put into braces at the age of 5 after being diagnosed with Legg Calve Perthes, a hip disease that not only prevented me from walking unsupported but from my true passion; dancing.  While I was undergoing treatment and physical therapy, there was no opportunity for me to continue with my ballet training.  These years of restriction impacted my confidence and limited my self-expression.  With my belief that every child deserves to experience dance, and my own unique physical needs, this program has forever been an aspiration of mine that has finally come true."
