Sharing Dance in the Community

NBS is developing valuable resources that are easily accessible to dance educators, providing a meaningful cultural experience, where we celebrate dance together without barriers.

Sharing Dance in the Community

Dance is unique as it bridges the gap between the world of arts and culture, and that of sports and physical activity. Whether it’s social, physical, cultural or environmental, there are many benefits for children and youth when community-based programs are integrated with dance.

Currently, NBS offers classroom resources for teachers to use dance as a kinesthetic tool to teach course content. By January 2018, new resources will be available to help community leaders empower their communities by delivering dance in a variety of program settings.
