About this Grantee

In consultation with an artist-in-residence from Ballet Northeast, a local dance performance company, Ms. Luksha and Mr. Quinn present a dance workshop to introduce students to jazz dance and ballet. Students experience the elements and style of dance and perform final choreographed pieces during the school’s evening music assembly. Participants write essays about the components and principles of dance form, the social and cultural aspects of dance, and their personal connections to the workshop. Students’ new interest and knowledge in dance provides the foundation for a competitive school dance team.
