United Dance provides dance programs under the direction of former Boston Ballet dancer Boris Richir specifically designed to meet the unique needs of individuals with Down syndrome.
United Dance aims to share the love of dance and foster creativity by providing high quality, engaging, and thoughtfully designed programming in a structured, safe environment where individuals with Down syndrome and their families can be unequivocally themselves and experience the joy of dance to the fullest. Through dance, students can strengthen their self-expression, confidence, artistry, social, and leadership skills as well as build their strength, balance, coordination, and motor skills.
All classes are taught by a professional dancer who is trained in teaching dance to specialized populations. The teacher is supported by an assistant teacher, a musician, and a physical therapist or health care professional.
