Summer Expressive Arts

Harold & Joan Feinbloom EXPRESSIVE ARTS PROGRAM: Music, Art, & Dance Therapy

This program receives generous support from the B. Thomas Golisano Foundation.   

For more than 30 years, the Expressive Arts Department has created a variety of programs for people of all ages and abilities. Our programs and offerings continue to adapt to meet our students’ interests. We continue to impact the lives of our students by creating a safe place to learn how to express themselves as individuals through music, art, and dance.

Music, Art, and Dance Therapy are well-established and researched healthcare professions offering therapeutic music interventions that address the physical, emotional, cognitive, communication, and social needs of individuals of all ages. Music, Art, and Dance sessions improve the quality of life for persons who are well and also meet the needs of children and adults with learning differences. Our Music, Art, and Dance sessions are designed to: promote wellness, relieve stress, alleviate pain, express feelings, enhance memory, develop academic skills, improve communication, promote physical rehabilitation, and improve social development.
