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 presence of their peers.
