Call For Teaching Artists
DANCECleveland is looking to expand its Teaching Artist Roster for its highly successful
Read To Learn Dance To Move program. Read To Learn... Dance To Move is a curriculum based PreK/Kindergarten program that promotes language, literacy, and movement by engaging students through tactile learning, creative thinking, and imagination. During the program, teaching artists introduce six forms of dance (Ballet, Tap, Jazz, African, Modern, and Hip Hop) to the students and incorporate a children's book about each style of dance.
Classes run January 23-March 15, 2018 (make-up week March 19-23) and take place at various schools within the Cleveland Metropolitan School District.
Each class is 45-minutes in length. Each classroom meets once a week for 8 weeks.
A classroom day will include 2-3 classes per day. Sometimes traveling to different schools between each class (within close proximity in the CMSD school district.)
There are two teaching artists per classroom.
