In an effort to provide ongoing recreation and social opportunities for community members with disabilities, the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission (CCPRC) invites people with special needs to attend a superhero-themed dance party on May 1.
People with special needs and their families and caregivers are invited to attend the event on the evening of Wednesday, May 1 at the Cooper River Room at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park. The fun will take place from 6 – 8 p.m.
The spirited dance party will have a superhero theme. Attendees are encouraged to wear a superhero costume or attire if they so choose. Snacks and refreshments will be provided on site, and a DJ and other special guests will be on hand to entertain all.
Advance registration is recommended. Admission is $4 if purchased in advance, or $5 on site. Chaperones and ages three and under are free of charge.
The Superhero Dance Party is part of CCPRC’s AccessABILITY program. Launched in 2012, CCPRC’s AccessABILITY program strives to meet the growing needs of community members with limitations. The program provides therapeutically based recreation offerings for people with cognitive and physical disabilities to promote physical fitness, health, wellness, increased self-esteem and greater independence.
Other upcoming programs as part of the AccessABILITY program will include three Special Needs Swim Nights at Charleston County waterparks this summer. For more information on the Superhero Dance Party or any CCPRC program, visit CharlestonCountyParks.com or call 843-795-4386.
