Fitness Fusion and Dance of Williamsville will offer an eight-week program for children with disabilities starting next week at the Elma, Marilla, Wales Boys and Girls Club.

The adaptive fitness program for children ages 10 to 18, will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. on Mondays 4 at the club, 2080 Girdle Road, Elma.
