Core ProgramWorld DanceCustomizedEducator TrainingAssemblies

dancers 17Assemblies

Our performance-based programs expose large groups of students to the different styles of ballroom, Latin, and swing. Each assembly weaves live dance performances with student interaction and spoken narrative components. Assemblies can be performed in either an auditorium or gymnasium setting and typically last 40-50 minutes.

Assemblies can provide an engaging overview of social and ballroom dance or be customized with the following themes:

Cultural appreciation - exploring the world through dance
African-American History - emphasis on dances of the Harlem Renaissance (swing, lindy hop, charleston)
Latin-American Heritage - emphasis on Latin dance styles (salsa, cha-cha, tango, mambo, merengue, samba)
Character Education - emphasis on manners and etiquette.
