From Introducing the Foster-Schmidt Dance Company:
“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.”
