Dancing Classrooms uses a curriculum-based teaching approach to achieve social awareness and build self-esteem. Students are taught the vocabulary of various contemporary social dances in a classroom setting. Each class in the series introduces new steps, reinforcing what has been previously learned through practice and repetition.
DANCING CLASSROOMS RESIDENCY
Dancing Classrooms targets the 5th & 8th grades however, exceptions have been made for Spring semester 4th grade students. The program is a 10 week residency that meets twice per week, culminating in a showcase where every child performs. Audience members can include parents, the local community, lower grades, and school staff.
All students are then invited to continue their dance education at our DC Academy, which is held on weekends at our home studio in Herald Square. The cost to attend is minimal.
