Our sign language class is open to teens, both typical and neurodiverse. Sign Language can help improve understanding of non-verbal communication, spatial awareness, visual processing, and self-awareness. Using music as a medium for learning helps students learn faster and with better retention. This class is designed to help students improve their stage presence and emotional expression. No previous sign language experience required.
