VFF USA supports children with disabilities for rich educational opportunities beyond the traditional classroom. Students with hearing and visual disabilities can participate in an adaptive dance program. You bring the joy of dancing to hundreds of children with us each year.
“Dance is important to show children that their disabilities don’ have to hold them back from opportunities”, says Sigi Rajasekhar, classical dance teacher at VFF.
Depending on each child’s disability, different techniques are employed to help them adapt. For children with hearing impairments, a system of lights is used to signal music beats, while children with visual impairments rely on tactile cues from their instructors. Currently, VFF provides adaptive dance lessons to 235 students in primary and secondary school.
