IAHD Finds Its Dancing Feet

Due to the generosity of The New Yankee Stadium Community Benefits Fund, IAHD received funding to hire a Dance Artist, Addie Diaz, who provided two semesters of dancing lessons to the men and women at IAHD. The lessons focused on several old school and current popular party line dances. Besides just dancing and having a generally good time, Ms. Diaz’s dancing lessons taught sequences of movements, provided physical activity and increased social interactions.
