Zoom Music and Fitness for Adults with Special Needs
What is it? An eclectic mix of songs spanning across the genres all the way from Moon River by Andy Williams to Thriller by Michael Jackson. Simple stretches and movements that have been choreographed to each song have been carefully selected to improve range of motion and provide a structure for physical fitness.
Ideal Audience: Older teens and young adults with special needs and who love music and would benefit from daily exercise. Exercises are simple and repetitive, but intended to improve balance, range of motion, and cardio stamina.
When: Monday-Friday. 3 pm beginning the week of April 20, 2020 (until social isolation is resolved and maybe after if enough people are keen to continue). Registration ongoing.
Cost: $40 per week, per family
