Artz on the Moveis not only about teaching ballroom dance. The dance is a tool for getting the children to break down social barriers, learn about honor and respect, treat others carefully, improve self-confidence and physical fitness, communicate and cooperate, and accept others even if they are different. How Artz on the Move will work in your school: – The program is developmentally designed for 5th (11 year olds) and 8th (14 year olds). – The program is 10 weeks of 20, 45 minute sessions. – The classroom teacher not only participates in the sessions, but, he/she actively work to integrate elements of the program into existing school curriculum. – The 20th class is the Culminating Event, a school showcase for the kids to show the rest of the school (teachers and students) as well as their parents what they have learned.
