For those living with physical or developmental disabilities…
At all Juan Carlos Organization classes, people of all ages and abilities are invited to join in the spirit of joyful movement.
How did Juan Carlos Organization get started? In spring 2012, Lisbeth Garces recruited a Board of Directors who believed in her vision. Together, they planned the program and gained approval for its non-profit status from the federal and state governments by September 2012.
Zumba® (Inclusive!): What Is It? People of all abilities are invited to join together in modified Zumba® routines that are joyful and lively, yet gentle enough so that each person can participate at his/her own speed and level of comfort. Combinations of fast and slow dance movements strengthen the body in a safe, supportive atmosphere. The classes provide all participants - including those with mobility challenges and in wheelchairs - with physical and mental challenges and the opportunity to build social skills.
How are the classes of Juan Carlos Organization funded? Through contributions of $2 per class from those who can afford to pay. Through donations from individuals who believe in the mission of serving the special needs community with a program of exercise tailored to people with all kinds of disabilities and mobility challenges.
How can you support the Juan Carlos Organization program? Your tax-deductible contributions are invited and appreciated. The Board of Directors of Juan Carlos Organization invites interest from volunteers skilled in seeking grants.
