Offered on week day afternoons from August to May each year, our visual and performing arts programming enhance the quality of life for our participants. All involved must be at least 3 years old and can participate well into later years of life.
Curriculums, created to meet our participants at their point of need, generate priceless amounts of self-confidence and cultivate creative independence on the floor of our dance studio, stage, or visual art spaces. Depending on the semester, we generally offer weekly classes in visual art, theatre, music, choir, tumbling, general fitness, dance, creative movement, hip hop, yoga and many, many more!
Merrimack Hall offers comprehensive, substantive, year-round activities that improve the quality of life for over 500 children and adults with a variety of disabilities and diagnoses such as Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorders, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, intellectual disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, visual impairment and others. The long-term vision of Merrimack Hall remains focused on granting people with special needs typical social interactions and opportunities to participate in the visual and performing arts.
