What are the dimensions of ADA Ramps?

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Apr 10, 2019 11:00:00 AM
An ADA Ramp gives disabled persons access to all events with our portable ramps. It's a great and necessary feature. They are ADA-approved which means you won’t have to worry about compliance issues.

You're probably wondering what the dimensions of ADA ramps are available for the size of your stage. Design layout is also another factor that some organizations have not considered before. Participants feeling comfortable and safe is your first concern, with proper stage setup as your close second. To help out, we have our ADA ramp below with information to help break down the dimensions and layouts.

Valentine's Day for elementary school music and theater students can be fun. They're still exchanging Valentine's Day cards and excited to pass them out. The boys think that girls have cooties or they have a "girlfriend" at school. The two dynamics are funny to watch in the classroom.

Benefits of Going to Music Class

Posted by Shalina Wozny on Jan 16, 2019 1:30:00 PM

I was always a good student. I went to class and listened to the teacher. I even helped other students that needed help grasping the quadratic formula - math was my best subject. However, not all students have that same mindset. Most students want to know the why behind what they're learning and why they have to sit through a teacher explaining something they're "never going to use". We've all heard that before, or even thought it ourselves in our work seminars.
