We are beyond thrilled to begin a new program here at EWI. Last night we had our first meeting and overview of this awesome program and it’s one we are excited about offering each month. “Dancing Divas and Dudes” was started in Nashville as the first nonprofit dance team for individuals with special needs. Each team member has the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally at practices while learning a variety of dance genres. When one of the program creators moved to Tuscaloosa to attend The University of Alabam a, it was the perfect opportunity to offer DDaD at Eagles’ Wings. As their website states, “The mission at the Dancing Divas and Dudes is to not only provide opportunities for our team members but to also show society the value and ability of individuals with special needs. The Dancing Divas and Dudes play a crucial role in erasing the stigma that individuals with special needs take away from society, and proving they contribute.”
We are so excited about this program and can’t wait to watch the ways in which our individuals flourish as they dance, dance, dance. You can keep up with the schedule and find out how you can be part of this exciting program by following us on Facebook or calling us or emailing Becci@eagleswingsoftuscaloosa.org.
