Down Syndrome Dance Program

Newtown Square’s Twirl is proud to be the only dance studio in Delaware County and Chester County that has a dance program designed specifically for students with Down syndrome.

Fueled by Twirl’s philosophy of “All for dance. Dance for all.” students with Down syndrome work on improving movement skills, coordination, and memorization as they explore jazz and musical theatre dance styles. Students also have performance opportunities at community events and Twirl’s end of the year show.
