Danceafrica In School Residency
BRING AFRICAN DANCE AND HISTORY INTO YOUR CLASSROOM TO CULTIVATE CULTURAL CONNECTIONS.
Jan—Jun 2023
DanceAfrica in the Classroom
Education

GRADES K—12

 
Get on your feet! Students of all ages engage in dance and rhythm-making as they explore different cultures from Africa and its diaspora, guided by a BAM teaching artist team of a percussionist and choreographer. Each residency focuses on the music and dance of a specific country highlighted in BAM’s DanceAfrica Festival, and culminates in a final performance.
This exuberant residency cultivates artistry in every participant and reminds them that they are contributors to dance legacy.
There are two ways to bring DanceAfrica in the Classroom to your students!

General Education: This program includes a residency planning meeting and 13 in-school sessions, each 45 to 60 minutes long. The residency culminates in a sharing at your school and a performance at BAM with other school partners. Schools enrolled in the residency are also given access to priority tickets to DanceAfrica.

Special Needs: BAM teaching artists allow students learning styles, needs, and abilities to shape how the residency is taught. This program includes a residency planning session and 14 in-school sessions, each 45 to 60 minutes long. The residency culminates in a sharing at your school and a performance at BAM with other school partners. Schools enrolled in the residency are also given access to priority tickets to DanceAfrica.
