Dancers Disproving Disabilities 

About Us

Our Mission

The Dancing Divas is Nashville’s first dance team for individuals with special needs. We are a nonprofit dance team that operate solely on donations. Each team member has the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally at practices while learning a variety of dance genres. 

The Importance

The mission at the Dancing Divas is to not only provide opportunities for our team members, but is to also show society the value and ability of special needs. The Dancing DIva’s are a crucial piece to erasing the stigma that individuals with special needs take away from society, and proving they contribute.

How we Make a differnace

The Team

The team members of the Dancing Divas  are provided with a safe haven to grow physically, mentally, and emotionally. Our practices begin with “circle time” which allows each team member to debrief from their week in a supportive enviroment. Next, the Divas stretch and work on their physical fitness. During this warm up time, many genres of dance are explored such as Ballet, Zumba, and Pilates.  Balance, technique, and strength are improved through the team’s warm up. Finally, the team spends time learning and perfecting their current performance piece. 

Performances

After months of hard work learning and perfecting a dance, the Dancing Divas have the opportunity to perform for a crowd. Each performance plays a significant part in improving the team’s confidence. Additionally, the Dancing Divas hope that through their performances the audience will have chance to experience the abilities and value of individuals with special needs. 

Activities

The Dancing Divas is more than just a dance class. We are unique because we take our team outside of the studio in order to provide social opportunities. The Dancing Divas have a special bonds because of all the fun activities our team participates in. Wether we are having a pizza party or a photo shoot, the Divas never fail to share many memorable laughs and adventures.
