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 are offered in-person and/or livestreamed, and can be designed for specific grade levels and tailored to your classroom’s goals. Click here to learn more about our pre-recorded dance class packs.
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.
