Core Program: Building Relationships Through Dance
Our core program focuses on community building through social dance forms, including Latin, ballroom, hip-hop & line dance, Chicago steppin’ and more. In each session, students explore new genres of dance and become comfortable working and interacting with peers to perform those dances. Explicit SEL themes will be layered into each lesson with an emphasis on social awareness and relationship skills.
Culminating Activity Options: All programs include facilitation of a performance or showcase at the end of each session. This can be offered either as grade-level classroom exchanges (informal show-and-tell), an assembly, or a parent-engagement activity. For some programs, the opportunity to participate with other schools in one of our signature Dance-Off events is also available.
Virtual program delivery options are provided in the event of remote learning, and current health, safety and physical distance guidelines are adhered to at all times.
