Breanna’s Gift provides classes in the arts for critically ill children and their families. The classes are taught by professional artists/teachers and each teacher is assisted by a Breanna’s Gift volunteer. Classes are taught at Ronald McDonald House of the Twin Cities, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota on the St. Paul and Minneapolis Campuses and U of Minnesota Amplatz Children’s Hospital. The program is free to the children and to the facilities we visit. Here is a sampling of classes offered.
Dance classes are geared to every age group. We offer classes in ballet, tap, jazz, flamenco and of course, a little hip hop. read more
