  • The Autism Project
    Pilot Session at the Hubbard Street Dance Center

    Hubbard Street’s Youth, Education and Community Programs create inclusive classrooms in which everyone is welcome to dance. Our Adaptive Dance Programs focus on students’ strengths — on their talents and potential so they may learn to see themselves as we see them: as dancers and choreographers. These new curricula utilize concepts from the choreographic process, established dance and improvisation techniques to develop the unique artistry of each participant. The Autism Project pilot program will be held Summer 2014.
