The iDance Adaptive Performing Arts Center has big news for the new year! Karen Medina, iDance Director, was recently awarded the 2015 Maumee Valley Civitan Award for community involvement. Ms. Medina is proud to be a part of the non-profit 501c3 performing arts program and encourages her students to share their talents and passion with the community, performing at over 75 local events in the past 3 years.
iDance is thrilled to share that it has launched two new and successful programs this year. The first, iSing is an adult vocal performance group that meets on Mondays at 6:00pm and is free to join. Ms. Medina hopes to inspire wheelchair-bound individuals to participate in iSing and share their passion for the performing arts. Drum Fit is a second cardio program, launched recently, which features low impact, upper body conditioning. The class meets Sundays at 4:00pm with a $2.00 drop-in fee. Medina stated “The participants are seeing and feeling the benefits of being connected to fitness while having a lot of fun. The class is full of laughter and energy when families and friends share the experience.”
The iFit Community Gym is already in the works! Medina says, “This will give our families more opportunities to strengthen healthy habits which benefit individuals in the special needs population.” With the generous help of Kohl’s in Action Associates, the project is expected to be completed in the next few months.
