At each of our PreK-5 partner schools, our school-time interdisciplinary dance education program with a seven-year scope and sequence of instruction is integrated with the students’ classroom curricula. Our Teaching Artists provide dance classes to public elementary schools throughout the school year with 16 dance lessons per program of study. The program includes a classroom teacher-facilitated dance journal writing program and an end-of-program sharing for parents and the school community. Studies show that the program has a positive impact on our students’ academic outcomes as well as positively reinforcing their social and emotional skills.
