CALLING ALL DANCE EDUCATORS!
Each year BalletX presents a one-week training residency with National Dance Institute master educators for our Dance eXchange teaching artists and greater community, and we want you to take part in it. Each participant receives a full scholarship from BalletX to attend the residency free-of-charge. This year’s residency runs September 16-20 at the Stephen Girard School in Philadelphia.

Dance eXchange, our in-school outreach program, emphasizes dance as a means to promote self-confidence, acquire valuable life skills, and establish personal standards for excellence. It is currently offered at four partner elementary schools in the Philadelphia School District, and works with 3rd and 4th grade students. Through the program, students gain a basic dance vocabulary; a deeper understanding of dance as a performing art form to which many of them have not been previously exposed; and an opportunity to excel at something altogether new, in the presences of their peers. By cultivating dance appreciation at a young age, Dance eXchange widens the art form’s reach for its own sake and the sake of future audiences.
