"Movement and dance provide a holistic approach to physical, emotional, and social development for students with autism. At Palm Beach School for Autism, the power of movement and dance elevates each student’s experience; it is a key component to their growth, both socially and academically. We are excited about the opportunity this partnership, with the Dance Media Foundation, will allow for us to provide dance instruction to many more students.”
