They dance for fun, and it shows! Students in
the Toledo Ballet's Adaptive Dance Program may have something to teach others.
They practice twice a week to get ready for
their end of the year showcase. But these aren't typical ballet dancers. All of
them have Down syndrome, and ballet is their outlet to shine.
"I'm really good and my dance is my life," said
The program was started by instructor Ann
Heckler five years ago. It gives the students a chance to learn from the best
and perform with the best.
"Why wouldn't everybody get to dance? Why would
it just be the typical body, the typical cognitive level, the typical physical
level?" asked Heckler. "I just felt like it was the right thing to do."
And at the end of their performances, these
dancers get a standing ovation.
"She's just really changed, and more upbeat and
feels really good about herself," said Cynthia Dress, one dancer's mother. "Anytime
that we can have something that they feel beautiful and express themselves and
feel really good about, it makes a parent feel just as happy, as well."
