AfricanDanceBeat

Bring African dance into your classroom to spark learning and self-expression! Each year, AfricanDanceBeat focuses on the music and dance traditions of a select African country from the continent or diaspora—and students celebrate the customs and cultures of this country through research and dance-making.

Program comprises 13 workshops inclusive of in-class instruction and a reflection, each 45 minutes long.

AfricanDanceBeat Special Needs

This extended 14-session in-school dance residency, led by teaching artists with experience working with diverse populations, modifies the AfricanDanceBeat program for those with special needs. Students learn about cultures and customs from Africa and its diaspora, and embrace their creativity in dance and movement classes that are developmentally appropriate and responsive to each student’s abilities. Apply for Special Needs AfricanDanceBeat Residency.

Program comprises 14 workshops inclusive of in-class instruction and a reflection, each 45 minutes long.
