KC Ballet Adaptive Dance Programs offer creative movement and ballet classes in an open environment for children and adults with disabilities.

Younger students will experience rhythmic activities guided by our team to stimulate fine and gross motor skills and speech and language development, as well as sensory, visual and auditory processing skills!
