Adapted Physical Education Programs

The Physical Education Department offers a variety of physical activity opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. All programs begin the third week in September. Registration is required, so call early as some programs have limited enrollments.

All programs are held in the Park Center at SUNY Cortland. Programs are staffed by students majoring in physical education and supervised by adapted physical education faculty.

This gym and swim-based program is designed for children ages five and older and young adults with disabilities. For more information, contact the adapted physical education graduate assistant office at 607-753-5540.

Skill Builders, which runs from 6-7 p.m., is designed for toddlers and preschoolers, ages 2-5 years, identified with developmental delays who enjoy participating in small group, play-based activity.

The Challenger Sports Program, which runs from 7-8 p.m., is designed for children ages 6-15 years, who are interested in improving sport specific skills necessary to be successful in local youth sports programs.

The peer mentorship program, new to SUNY Cortland's Physical Education Department, pairs a college student majoring in physical education with a community member with a disability. The goal is to increase daily physical activity. This program is limited but has flexible workout times and is designed to promote healthy lifestyles. For more information contact Tim Davis at 607-753-4969.

This program is staffed by two graduate assistants in physical education and undergraduate students majoring in physical education. Children receive homework help, a healthy “snack attack” and physical activity to include ice skating. All ability levels are welcome to participate. Children with disabilities are encouraged to participate. This is a fee-based program.

For more information and registration material contact the JM McDonald Sports Complex at 607-753-8100.

The DREAM project is a mentorship program deisgned specifically for ages 13-21 with disabilities who would benefit from daily physical activity with the support of a college age peer. The DREAM project has no set time or place for activity but is designed around the community opportunities and interests of the participants. For more information contact Tim Davis at 607-753-4969.

This activity is open to anyone who would benefit from or is interested in participation in wheelchair sports. These sports include wheelchair basketball, softball, power soccer, football and more. For more information, contact Tim Davis at 607-753-4969.

Well, sometimes that's how it is.

Lots of kids love things that they aren't incredibly talented at, and we let them continue because they are getting something good out of it.
Sports, dance, singing, it doesn't matter. You let her continue if she loves it. It's not about creating a world class dancer. It's about fun and growth for your kid.
The teacher gets this.

Once i took a modern dance class while teaching

2009-03-28 09:12:45 by blackskimmmer

At a community college. the class was full of 18 to 2o somthing year old girls.
some were amazing dancers. some were stiff and boring, some were assured about there place in the world, some were self conscious as hell, some where skinny as a bone, some were fat, some were chunky some were slinky...
three things:
1) one girl was not particularly thin or slinky or shapey in a way i might automatically be attracted to... BUT she was alive! when she danced, everything was alive! she was the most amazing dancer to watch in the class. eventually, very attractive

Looking for good aerobic dance class in Memphis

2008-08-06 09:36:21 by jlrogers374

I used to take an aerobic dance class twice a week, one hour sessions each, that involved 5 different kinds of world dance. It was so much fun and an awesome work-out! My instructor moved, and I've never found anything quite like it again. Does anyone know of any good aerobic dance classes in town? I'd like at least 2-3 hours per week, preferably 4. Thanks!

I went to a Hebrew dancing class

2011-05-09 08:50:20 by d83

We are working on a formation team dance and there was a woman their who insisted on knowing the etymology of every dance term that the instructor used.
This lady was just looking for imaginary meanings in Hebrew terms that equated to Rock Step or Jump. It was one of the first times I could really see the projection or the deliberate imagination that some of my fellow Christians use interpret the world.
Sometimes a dream is just a dream it isn't the greatest revelation of all time, and sometimes a word just means jump, it doesn't have a greater deeper meaning

Let Smoove B Rock Your World

Damn, girl, you need to take the rest of the day off so I can break you off doggy-style in my bathroom.
Ever since we met two weeks ago, I knew you were the one for me. Your style, your booty, and your class are beyond all compare. In a world populated with many fine women, you are without a doubt the most fine. Let Smoove take you out tonight or, if you are busy, tomorrow night to show you how I treat a lady as exceptional as you. Allow me to break it down:
First, I will pick you up from your house in a white limousine and take you to the finest dance club in the entire city
