​FREE 2 BE​ ME DANCE

   DANCE FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH DOWN SYNDROME


“Free 2 Be Me is both a dance program that is its own reward and a powerful conduit for Melissa to come into her own as a young woman. That must be one of the universal powers of ballet, and as true for gifted dancers as it is for Melissa. I'm sure, as a dancer, you understood this, but for me, it wasn't so clear what the impact could be.” –Cheryl Hein
