The Anaheim Family YMCA hosted its seasonal “Special Friends Social” over the weekend. The Y offers a wide variety of programming for individuals of all ages and all abilities. Our Adaptive Musical Theater class gives teenagers and adults with special needs the opportunity to learn about the three principles of theater: acting, singing and dancing. This experience also helps them gain confidence, promotes independence and responsibility, and helps them to socialize and work with others. Participants are working toward building a healthy and active lifestyle.
Musical Theater is a weekly class for participants to meet and rehearse a musical number. This session, students prepared a song from “The Little Mermaid”. The team performed their scene at their social Friday night for those in attendance. A new session of Musical Theater begins in January!
