WHAT IS SCAT?

Swingin' with Creative Arts Therapies (SCAT) is a collaborative expressive arts program conceptualized by members of the Glass City Swing Band for individuals with special needs including physical, intellectual and emotional disabilities. This program is unique in that it will introduce each participant to a special place in time: The Swing Era.
Participants will be introduced to the various instruments of the band in a very short opening session. From here, they will have the opportunity to express their interpretations of swing music in 3 separate workshops (music, art and dance/movement) led by certified creative arts professionals.

Participants will have the opportunity to share their experience with the Glass City Swing Band in a very special performance at the end of the program.

This program is free of charge to all participants.
