The Foster-Schmidt Dance Academy for Down Syndrome is excited to present the Foster-Schmidt Dance Company. Students from the Dance Academy were required to audition to become a member of this new performing company. For students of the Foster-Schmidt Dance Academy for Down Syndrome, dance is not only a physical, creative, and social outlet, but also a way of inspiring others, and the company will be able to reach even greater audiences through additional performance opportunities.
The Foster Schmidt Dance Company will take class and rehearse a minimum of two hours per week at Atlanta Dance Central. They will prepare for performances with SIDEWAYS Contemporary Dance Company, including “Frankenstein’s Frolic” this October, and “Once Upon A Holiday” in December. Company members will also perform at various local community events. The new members are excited to share their passion for dance with the Atlanta community!
