"It stays with them, it impacts them. They're able to bring it back to the kids in the classroom... It's been very beneficial to them, I think it's an excellent idea for them."
- Sabrina Zamor (Teacher, Princeton House Charter School)
"You never know. We always seem to think they're not capable to do something, scared because they have a disability. We should just let them go and see what they like and excel in. When Anjalie is not involved in dance, she can close up and become hyperactive. When she is occupied by dance, it has an emmense calming effect on her. Before she started dancing, she was very clumsy, awkward, couldn't control her body very well and had poor concentration. It's helped her to focus, become more confident, aware of her body and certainly increased her gross motor skills"
- Trish Nangunoori (Mother, RN)
"They ask all the time: Are we going to dance class... That shows me progression, that shows that they are actually looking forward to it, they are interested in it. They are learning." - Cliff Zamor (Teacher, Princeton House Charter School)
"As you can see with our students, I think there's still that connection. It helps them when they are moving from left to right, crossing their arms around, making the circular motion. It's crossing that mid-line. Anything with gross motor skills; awesome. Because it will help them with reading, math, the writing, all of that."
