Danceworks on the Move

Bring Danceworks to Your School!

Dance and Multi-Arts Residencies: Danceworks’ faculty, working in collaboration with school staff, will design a custom theme-based arts residency for your school. Designed to meet the needs and goals of various student populations, residencies in dance and visual art programming are available for students in grades K-12, and may also integrate drama, music and creative writing. Programming can connect to academic content areas, a theme or be based on a specific style of dance/art.

Programming:

  • Is interdisciplinary
  • Reinforces and enhances school programs and curricula
  • Applies principles of the creative process
  • Ranges from a single workshop to a multi-week residency
  • Culminates in an informal event showcasing newly acquired skills and exhibiting student work
