We Believe Dance Transforms Lives

Based on the needs of each student population, Motion Exchange provides a customized program at each site from the following models:

  • Dance instruction: after-school dance classes, including jazz, hip hop, modern, and flamenco, tailored to the needs and levels of the partner school and its students
  • Dance integration: In-school programs crafted in partnership with classroom teachers both to reinforce grade-level curriculum and to align with the National Core Arts Standards
  • Dance residency: Guest artists or choreographers paired with a school to fill an artistic need, including creating new work for an assembly or musical
