In-School and After School Programs
We are now a Strategic Source Vendor with Chicago Public Schools, allowing us to take contracts over $25,000 for programming as well as an approved Chicago Public Schools Tier 1 Remote Learning Partner!
Our residencies will be custom-designed in collaboration with school administrators and utilize our new e-learning assessment tool. Online sessions will also include opportunities for increased engagement through student input, dance performance video presentations and a culminating dance video montage featuring students from the class.
