For the students
Ellie White is passionate about dancing, and we’re excited to welcome her and our wonderful yoga instructor at CCB, Julie Hill to lead our Valentine’s Dance party this month! Ellie won a scholarship from the National Federation of the Blind of Colorado in 2021 and appeared on America’s Got Talent with her dance troupe, Silhouettes, when she was nine. She’s also a CCB graduate! Ellie and Julie have cued up some great dance music for the Valentine’s Dance Party. They are ready to teach students all kinds of dance moves. We’ll also decorate heart-shaped sugar cookies to celebrate Valentine’s Day!
We promised this in January, and in February we’ll bring it to fruition!
Take part in a dynamic workshop. Meet Amira Lucas president of the National Federation of the blind of Colorado Parents of blind children. Learn about resources and opportunities that this vibrant organization provides. Meet David Nietfeld Certified Orientation and Mobility instructor. Learn about independent travel. When should your child begin receiving services? Should your child be using a cane? How much instruction is needed?
But we won’t just talk about it. Next, you will be given a cane with a blind fold or “Learning Shades.” You’ll have a lesson in basic cane technique, including how to hold the cane and how to navigate around the center. You’ll even successfully negotiate the stairs. WE will come back together to answer your questions and to plan future workshops. And that’s when the adults will get their snacks.
The Colorado Center for the Blind follows official guidelines to limit exposure to and spread of COVID-19 as required by Tri-county Health, the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment, etc. These include wearing masks indoors, social distancing, individually packed snacks, and hand sanitizers available throughout the building.
