Education and Community
In-Sight Dance Company believes that we have a responsibility to the next generation of dance artists and dance audiences. The severe lack of diversity in dance companies and audiences concerns the artists at In-Sight Dance. We have programs that work to improve society through community service and volunteerism. We cultivate art education and appreciation through high quality dance education, student and family workshops, and master classes.
Community Programs for Schools and Families
Building Creativity and Success
Programs are designed to build life skills that are necessary for success such as Creativity, Collaboration, Conflict Resolution, Leadership, Compassion, and Problem Solving.
Custom Programs that fit your needs.
Already have a dance program? Invite In-Sight Dance in for a master class.
Master classes can be customized to fit the needs and interests of your students. Some topics include:
Site Specific Dance
Dance Education: After School and Summer Intensives
After school dance programs
Our after school dance programs range from dance appreciation to intensive ballet training. All of our programs incorporate common core standards and the NYC blueprint for teaching and learning dance.
Experiences for a lifetime
We include experiences outside of the studio for our students. Activities have included attending dance festivals, seeing performances at Lincoln Center, volunteering on Thanksgiving, and assisting as ushers at In-Sight Dance Company performances. These experiences outside of the studio help shape the next generation of dancers and dance audiences.
Choreography Clinic - Using group exercises, individual exploration, and peer and professional feedback, students discover new ways to create dance.
Strength through Ballet Class - Designed for all dancers, we emphasize strengthening muscle tone, improving alignment, and practicing musicality in a way that is safe for the various bodies taking the class.
Performance Clinic - Invite In-Sight Dance to your school before a production to give class as well as provide notes on performance.
