I love this story.
Last week I got an email from Erika Reynolds who is a mother of four and was looking for volunteer opportunities for her daughter Katherine, a High School student in Greenwich. They thought that it would be a nice idea to give dance lessons to Autistic kids in the community.
In 2022, Erika Rented a Dance Studio and posted about free dance classes on Facebook.
Now the Studio has grown to over 20 high school girls volunteering and 17 students coming from all over Fairfield County to learn dance. They do everything from Basic Dance to HipHop and even Classical Ballet. One of the best parts about it is they have a 1:1 student ratio. Which is great for that one on one connection.
The studio is called Flower Petals Adaptive Dance Company. They just became a 501c3 in December. You can learn more about them here: FlowerPetalsAdaptiveDance.com
