Pre-Recorded Dance Class Packs

Children’s Wisconsin is proud to sponsor Danceworks Pre-Recorded Dance Class Packs for all MPS schools at no cost in 2020-21!


Pre-Recorded Dance Class Packs are designed for learners in school and at home, either alone or with a class, to use on their time.

Danceworks virtual dance classes create opportunities to integrate movement-based educational activities into a school’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, confidence, and respect for self and others. 

Sponsored by Children’s Wisconsin, Danceworks’ Pre-Recorded Dance Class Packs will support Milwaukee Public Schools in the 2020-21 school year with movement-based educational videos at no cost to the school or families. Dance videos will provide K4-6th grade students with needed arts and physical education activities critical to their social-emotional development and overall well being during the health pandemic.

Pre-recorded Dance Class Packs are video classes that can be utilized by teachers and parents at any time during or after the school day to provide maximum flexibility to schools and students. Classes are designed for two age groups; K4-2nd grade and 3rd-6th grade. Dance Class Packs include six 20 minute classes for K4-2nd graders and six 30 minute classes for 3rd-6th graders. Classes offered include: Mindful Movement, Stretch & Strengthen, Rhythm Works, Hip Hop, Jazz Dance, and Classical Indian Dance. These classes will be specifically designed to get virtual learning students up and out of their seats to re-energize and re-focus brains and bodies.
