Danceworks Residencies

What is a Danceworks Residency?

Danceworks residencies create an opportunity to integrate movement-based educational activities into your organization’s everyday routine. Our dynamic teaching artists present dance classes in a variety of styles that develop coordination, rhythm, balance, strength, flexibility and encourage self expression. 

Classes can be designed for a specific grade level and can be tailored to your classroom’s goals.

Danceworks Residency Interest Form

Every year, Danceworks partners with over 75 organizations including schools, adult day care facilities, community centers, non-profits and businesses, to design custom arts residencies of varying lengths with diverse goals. Programming can connect to academic content areas, a theme, or be based on a specific style of dance.
