At Mark DeGarmo Dance, we establish multi-year partnerships with inner-city Title 1 public schools to provide PreK to Grade 5 students with dance instruction aligned with the traditional academic curricula, learning standards and blueprints.


We emphasize building age-appropriate dance skills, including: physical and spatial awareness, improvisation, choreography and creative expression. We serve Title 1 schools lacking arts and physical education resources and whose student populations are nearly 100% multicultural and living below the USA poverty rate, as determined by participation in free and subsidized meal programs.
