We offer many customized programs to fit your needs. A few options include:
Family Reading / Culture Night
These family dance workshops start with a short story or poetry reading, followed by learning dances inspired by the literary work. This is an ideal program for family/community engagement activities. We offer various themes, including Dance Around the World and JITTERBUGS! - Presented by Author and DwC Director, Margot Toppen.
RHYTHMBUSTERS - Hip-Hop & More
Our innovative hip-hop curriculum is designed to educate students about regional styles of hip-hop within the USA (break, pop-lock, krump, footwork, etc.), with some tap-based rhythm skill development mixed in (no tap shoes required!). The emphasis is on FUN and movements and music will be tasteful and age-appropriate.
High School - Prom Prep & Cultural Workshops
At the high school level, we offer prom preparation workshops that fuse traditional social dance and etiquette with contemporary music and dance. Additionally, we provide services to high schools in the form of workshops and field trips for language classes, professional development and in-school workshops to supplement physical education offerings, and choreography services for high school musicals and performance events.
Dance and DINE with Class
Includes activities that teach table manners (Mind Over Manners!), as well as a ballroom dance workshop. A great idea for a parent-child event, such as a mother-son/daddy-daughter dance, or as an in-school SEL activity.
Fitness Dance / Zumba
Make movement and dance part of a healthy lifestyle. Material is designed to strengthen and tone the body through dance-based movement. This class is also popular for adults! Several of our instructors are Zumba-certified and can provide this service for your school or organization.
Social Dance - Basics and Continuing
Flexible format classes can cover dances ranging from Samba to Steppin'. We'll work with you to design a curriculum that is appropriate to your group's interests and ability.
We provide single-day workshops or a short series to tie into special holidays and school-year themes. A few ideas include:
Our teaching artists have backgrounds in everything from Tap to Yoga to Folk Dance. If you have a special request, we'll pair you with a well-qualified instructor for your chosen genre.
