Current Programming

Sparkplug Dance founder and lead teacher Rachael Carnes will visit EC CARES’ Circle of Friends and Child’s Garden classrooms throughout this fall, offering an adaptive creative movement program for children with autism and orthopedic disabilities. Rachael has twenty years experience teaching adaptive early childhood creative movement and music, and has led workshops on inclusive movement and music all over the globe. “I’m excited to become a small part of the EC CARES community,” Carnes says. “And I look forward to working with the children, parents and wonderful EC CARES staff, to bring some new movement experiences into their already stellar program.” This project is partially sponsored by the City of Eugene/Lane Arts Council, and by generous gifts by individuals who support our mission to bring the joy of movement to our community’s most deserving little dancers.
