Music and Motion

Eight year-old Mary Cassell, who has Cerebral Palsy, recently participated in the Joffrey Ballet's recent production of the Nutcracker (The post on her performance is a few posts ahead of this one). Even more relevant to Cerebral Palsy, Mary's grandmother and founder of the Maryland Youth Ballet started Music and Motion classes. Music and Motion classes are specifically and exclusively designed for children with disabilities. The classes began because Mary's grandmother wanted a way for her granddaughter to enjoy the physical benefits of ballet. In my opinion the classes look really fun and engaging.
