The Big Sister Program

Our volunteer Big Sisters are very special members of our studio and we think you'll agree!
Each dancer is paired with a Big Sister from our studio.  
Big Sisters work with the same dancer every week for the entire session or entire year.

The children who volunteer for this special role provide support and friendship
to their little brother or sister throughout the class. 


Miracles in Motion meets on Fridays. 
The class from 5:15-6:00pm is for 5-10 year old dancers and the class from 6:00-6:45pm is for 7-18 year old dancers.

Each Class is forty-five minutes and will consist of a brain dance warm up, ballet, rhythm, jazz and free dance.
The teacher will pair each Big Sister with a student from Miracles in Motion to be your Little Brother or Little Sister.  You will work with the same child every week for the entire session or entire year.  Consistency is very important and this is a huge commitment, so make sure you treat it as such and are in a position to give these students your undivided attention EVERY Friday afternoon.

The students in Miracles in Motion have special needs.  This may mean that they have physical, developmental, and/or mental disabilities. 
Each student is unique and will have his or her own strengths and weaknesses.  We will brainstorm ways to work with each student. 
If you ever have questions about how to better work with your student in class, please ask me! 
If I don't know the answer, I will ask the student's parents.  Working with this population may be out of your comfort zone at first and that's ok. 
If you ever get uncomfortable or feel like you are in a little over your head, please let me know and I will help you and give you suggestions! 
Just keep in mind that they are KIDS first, and they just want to dance and have fun like every other child!
