ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE PROGRAMS

dancED Movement Project offers engaging one, two and three week customized Artist-In-Residence programs for schools in Alberta and Ontario.  Professional dancers and arts educators work with each class to teach movement fundamentals and rehearse a comprehensive and challenging dance routine.  All programs finish with the highly anticipated final showcase where students perform for their peers, parents and teachers in a full-scale production. 

Currently, dancED Movement Project delivers three main program options to capture the diversity of today’s dance and performance spectrum:

This program is fun and upbeat with a strong focus on quality of movement and musicality. Students will learn what makes hip-hop unique from other forms of dance: sharpness of movement, rhythm and attitude.
