A specialized scholarship program facilitated by
Central Coast Dance FoundationStudents with special needs are “ANGELS” at Artistry in Motion. We recognize their unique contribution to our world and desire wholeheartedly to protect them from harm while empowering them to find joy and self-confidence through an education in the performing arts.
At Artistry in Motion, we are committed to a healthy learning environment for all students. We believe that exposure to the arts is critical in a child’s development and can be especially empowering for a child with special needs. At AIM, our teachers and students are expected to embrace a broad range of learning styles so that all students feel welcome and free to express their unique creativity as well as learn new methods.
While all children need patience as they develop their skills in attention, focus, communication, expression, and comprehension, it is our mission at AIM for students with special needs to feel especially safe. AIM encourages its entire staff to work directly with parents to constantly learn about each child’s unique challenges and rise to be the best teacher they can be for that child. One-on-one meetings are encouraged with parents to have a better understanding of the methods that are currently successful for that child, while considering new, creative possibilities through music and expression.
The Central Coast Dance Foundation proudly provides financial aid for students with special needs. Understanding that a healthy artistic education can be critical in that child’s development, we believe that they should not be denied such a crucial opportunity because of financial restraints. Parents and guardians of these ANGELS are encouraged to inquire and apply for the CCDF “AIM Angels” scholarship program at Artistry in Motion.
