How did the Glee Club program start?

Inspired by the TV show GLEE that took the country by storm, Bonnie Hayhurst collaborated with Jim Meadows at The Lake Metroparks to create Glee Club, an adapted program for teens and young adults of all abilities. Ten years later, Glee Club is now a Groovy Garfoose phenomenon being offered across Northeast Ohio in Mayfield, Solon, Independence and Stow.

Glee Club is custom designed for teens and young adults of all abilities to access music. Our board-certified music therapists collaborate with 10-15 teens and young adults each week to learn sign language, create choreography, play instruments and sing to chart-topping pop songs. The program culminates in a performance for friends and family on the final day of class.

What does Glee Club programming include?

Glee Club programming includes:

  • Custom programming to meet all participants needs
  • Singing and vocalizing
  • Adapted movement, yoga, stretching and exercise
  • Original choreography
