About us

Out Loud Dance was formed with the desire to provide an inclusive environment for students with and without disabilities to create, collaborate and share in the joy of movement. Through various dance genres including jazz, ballet, hip hop and creative movement students will have the opportunity to discover different types of music, move with sensory tools, interact with patient and caring volunteers and perform the skills they have learned together with a sense of pride. Come join us and let's start dancing OUT LOUD! Contact us if you have any questions about our programs.

Out Loud Dance is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization. Our classes throughout the school year rely solely on charitable contributions to sustain our program.
