Success through Dancing: Teaching Skills and Awakening Young Souls
Miles, Tara
Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, v18 p54-57 2017
Dance is important for all students, but it is especially important for deaf and hard of hearing students. Dance is visual, and students can learn to dance without barriers. Teaching dance to deaf and hard of hearing children allows them to have the same kind of experiences as those of hearing children. It allows them to be open to taking risks, solving problems, figuring out solutions, and working together. Through dance, deaf and hard of hearing children thrive and grow.
