GiGi’s Teen Tastic group has been hard at work learning a new dance. During Teen Tastic, which meets every other Thursday, they selected the song, My Type, and created an original dance routine. They can’t wait to debut it at our 3rd annual Get Down With Down Syndrome Dance-A-Thon on September 23rd at DePaul College Prep.
At GiGi’s Playhouse, we build confidence and social skills during Teen Tastic!
- Participants will increase social skills, with focus on group participation and increasing leisure activity options.
- An increase in language development, with focus on appropriateness, maintaining conversation and non-verbal social language.
- Gross motor skills development, with focus on general health, fitness (strength and balance), and awareness of personal space.
