Come Dance With Us!

Designed to Encourage

This unique program gives children with varying abilities, the opportunity to express themselves through the art of dance. Health care professionals from both, Nemours Children’s Health System and Orlando Health, are an integral part of this process providing the dancers with insight on how to design the workshops around the needs of the participants. At the end of the second workshop the children get to showcase the choreography they have learned.


Come Dance With Us has brought together Orlando’s professional ballet dancers, health experts and some of the brightest children and given them all the opportunity to step out of their comfort zone and experience dance in a beautiful new way.
