Danceworks Generations, formerly known as Danceworks Intergenerational Multi-Arts Program (IMAP), builds relationships between students from Milwaukee schools and older adults from assisted living and adult day programs through dance and visual arts instruction.
Danceworks Generations creates access to the arts and improves the lives of two underserved groups: urban youth and older adults. Generations is implemented at urban schools with limited or no arts education programming and nearby assisted living and older adult day programs in the city of Milwaukee.
The primary goals of Danceworks Generations are:
2016-17 Generations/IMAP Schools: Bruce Guadalupe Community School, Emerson Elementary, Hartford Elementary School, Neeskara School, Vieau School
2016-17 Generations/IMAP Adult Sites: Luther Manor—Adult Day Center and Assisted Living, Jewish Home and Care Center, St. John’s on the Lake, United Community Center—Adult Day Center, United Community Center—Senior Center
Danceworks Generations is generously funded by:
