At the end of a long school day (often largely spent sitting in the classroom), students are anxious to move! With the District Dance Academy Afterschool Dance Program, the learning continues as the movement begins!

Our afterschool dance program allows students to aspire to become conscious and engaged citizens, using dance as vehicle for success and transformation. The DDA afterschool program demonstrates that dance can be used to:
✨Acquire Knowledge
✨Solve Conflicts
✨Partner to accomplish greater goals
✨Improve academic achievement
✨Respect self, others, and the environment
✨Embrace community and diversity

Students learn multiple genres of dance including hip-hop, jazz, modern dance, Latin dance forms and creative movement/improvisation techniques. Each class focuses on the history, vocabulary, technique, and cultural context behind each form of dance with fun and interactive strategies that will help your child be excited to learn and dance! Every student gets a chance to showcase their own artistic voice by creating and sharing dance sequences created in small groups. The class fosters structured and supportive interactions with classmates, gives practice in problem solving, and builds academic as well as artistic skills. Additionally, the class highlights the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and positive group interactions through group and partner work.

Students in the DDA Afterschool Dance Program have the opportunity to perform in an informal presentation showcasing the knowledge gained during the classes for their peers, teachers, family, and the greater community!
