Dancing Together with CF is a virtual dance class designed for people living with Cystic Fibrosis and their community including friends and family. Adaptations to movement will be included in the class. No prior dance experience necessary. All ages welcome. After dancing, it's time for social connectivity with other members of the CF community.
This class is funded through the Impact Grant from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. This grant provides the ability for the classes to be offered at no cost to the participants.
This project was inspired by Amanda Killen. Suzanne Ryanstrati said, "Amanda was a former dance student. Her passion for dance radiates in the classroom and on stage. When she told me about her experience with CF and that people with CF could not take dance together I wanted to find a way to make that happen." Read Amanda's inspiring story here.
Instructors Nora Burkitt, Amanda Killen and Suzanne Ryanstrati facilitate classes in a variety of genres including, but are not limited to Ballet, Contemporary Modern, Creative Movement, Introduction to Dance, Jazz, Strength and Stretching, Improvisation, Dance Team, Musical Theater, Tap Dance, Afro-Cuban and Storytelling.
