DanceABILITY

DanceABILITY is a movement to music class for people with additional or special needs. Our instructors are great at judging the capacity of our class members and adapting each class to the participants’ needs. Classes may involve purely moving to music and extend to following simple choreographed moves.

Book a group in for a session and let us know any additional information that might be useful for example whether the group uses wheelchairs. Minimum group size is four people. If you usually have a carer they will need to be present. No extra charge for carers.

Classes are on Fridays by appointment. Other days may be available, or we can come to you. Just form a group of four or more people and book a session. Private sessions may be available soon or go on the Wait List and once we have enough participants we will offer a regular class time.

PCYC has a comfy foyer with chairs if you want to eat lunch. Our reception may also be able to supply a snack and beverage if needed for $2.00 per person with advanced notice.

KinderGym Ability

Expressions of interest are now being taken for the following KinderGym-Ability classes:

  • General KinderGym Ability
  • KinderGym Ability for Kids with Autism

Classes are tailored for children aged 2 years old to 5 years old who have an intellectual disability to work alongside their parent or carer, under the guidance of a qualified Gymnastics Coach.

Participants will develop gross motor skills and other key skills, in a fun supportive environment. Autism specific KinderGym seeks to also bring parents and kids with similar needs together to informally share information, early interventions and support.

Please note that this class may not be suitable for all children, and your first session is a trial to ensure the safety and cohesiveness of the group. One on One Rebound Therapy sessions may also be a good alternative.
