dance residencies

This program brings cultural practitioners into schools and community environments to facilitate culturally responsive, standards-based curricula that emphasize social emotional learning, community building, and creative expression.

Teaching artists facilitate lessons in foundational forms of Hip Hop/Street Dance forms such as: Locking, Breaking, Krump, House, and Social Dance.

The residency culminates in an interactive performance with friends and family where students present and share their original works.

workshops

Our dance workshops give community groups the opportunity to learn, grow, and connect in a safe and support environment. Experienced teaching artists facilitate responsive learning experiences that cater to the unique needs and levels of a group.

Connect creatively and playfully to your body, spirit & community!
