Residency programs are extended encounters with dance and are inspired by curricular themes and topics currently being explored by the students and teachers. Residencies may be as few as four in-school visits or as many as you would like! All residencies are taught by professional teaching artists with backgrounds in dance and arts integration. Each residency is tailored to the needs of individual classrooms and schools and aligns with PDE Academic Standards and national standards for dance and the arts.
