Education In Dance is an integrated arts enrichment program which provides a meaningful introduction and foundation in the arts for lifetime enhancement. In over sixty public and private schools throughout the New York Metropolitan Area we teach preschool through high school students of all populations including Special Education, Bilingual/ESL, and Gifted/TAG. Our program stimulates creativity and intellectual growth while contributing to emotional and physical well-being.
Residencies combine basic dance skills with creative movement, theater games, an exploration of quality music, visual art forms and tumbling as it relates to dance. The syllabus highlights shapes, levels, colors, locomotor methods as well as sensory awareness and self -esteem techniques to nurture the artist in each child.
The arts are uniquely capable of providing rich opportunities in exploring creativity and encouraging positive self-image. The arts are essential to opening new insights to the world and enriching our lives. We believe that aesthetic literacy is as basic and essential as linguistic literacy. If the arts become central to each child's learning experience then parents, teachers, and schools will fulfill their obligation to educate the whole person. Our goal is to give students a balance in their lives so that they may be motivated, engaged, and enriched for a lifetime through early exposure to the arts.
