The classes involve singing, percussion and dancing of many styles. Using a wide variety of music the program is designed to appeal to all ages and abilities. Dance Inclusion assists with many positive things such as fitness, fine motor, gross motor skills, cooperation, team building, friendship, confidence, performance skills, flexibility, independence and creativity. Tatam Rosato, a former dancer of 25 years and disability support worker is the founder of Dance Inclusion and has been teaching people with additional needs for 8 years.
Looking ahead, Tatam hopes to expand Dance Inclusion classes into rural and remote towns. There is a need for us here. Rurally, there’s less happening and not as many opportunities. We now have 10 classes running in various locations throughout Western Australia, with more than 200 participants attending each week! All venues have ample parking, wheelchair access, kitchen and accessible toilet facilities. Due to COVID-19, classes are also available online via Zoom.
