Traditional American and Multicultural Community Dancing and Music With Student Participation
Our dance workshops are well-suited addendums for elementary school students and middle & high school language students interested in learning more about their chosen culture. Homespun Community Dancing workshops can include dances from Latin America, Spain, Quebec, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Africa, Asia, and more than 50 other countries/cultures around the world. These dance and music workshops can also be integrated with history and geography units.
One of our most popular offerings, the Family Dance, is a school-wide community celebration that involves everyone. Students, parents, siblings, teachers, and administrators spend an evening dancing in time-honored traditions from around the world. If the evening is presented as the culminating activity after a school residency, students will be able to help teach their parents the dances they learned during the day.
