“We all hear about great educational programs in a few school districts, and we wish that these were available to all students in every district. When you see the faces of students who are participating in excellent programs and you grasp the impact that these programs have, you just want to shout from the rooftop, “Do whatever it takes to give every student this gift of educational excellence!”

John Wilson, Head of the National Education Association and senior fellow at the Pearson Foundation, highlighted the impact and value of Dancing Classrooms in his February 2013 Edweek blog entry

There’s still time to dance this school year.

Yes, it’s been quite a year for everyone. But there is still a way to safely come together, dance, and find joy.

With our new Safe Space Residency, we can offer schools a way to:

  • Dance safely, socially distanced and following all safety protocols
  • Enable students to move, appreciate music, movement, and experience a group activity with joy
  • Explore and celebrate different cultures

 

Details

  • A 10-lesson in-school residency program (can also be longer)
  • 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade students, regardless of background or ability
  • A Teaching Artist, carefully and systematically selected and trained in the Dulaine Method and the Dancing Classrooms Curriculum
  • A diverse range of social dances—merengue, foxtrot, rumba, swing, tango, waltz, and line dances—including the cultural history of each dance form
  • A curriculum connection assignment developed with the classroom teachers to support academic content areas
  • A clean, well-lit, un-trafficked space with a hard floor is ideal. Covered outdoor space also.
  • A Culminating Event for the school community and families to celebrate the students social-emotional journey through writing and dance
