Dancing Wheels at Beacon

Dancing Wheels made its debut at Beacon Elementary this month. It was a breathtaking program presenting dance and disability-related issues in a fun and informative way. This lecture/ performance has been applauded by educators and children across the country for its sensitivity relating to disability/ accessibility issues as well as its innovative approach to the art of dance. The program utilizes narration, discussion, demonstration, audience participation, and more to explore the diversity of disabilities both in real life situations and in the arts. Diversity in Hilliard Schools is our strength; it is what makes students Ready for Tomorrow. Our students came away with a sense of achievement and a greater understanding of the potential within us all.
