Why Dance?

Dance encourages kids to work from their own experiences and abilities, communicating thoughts, emotions and ideas through movement. Dance develops important skills like:

  • Exploring ideas through the creative process

  • Using movement to tell stories

  • Building self-confidence and a personal identity

  • Collaborating and working with a group

  • Learning and practicing the elements of dance

  • Cross-curricular and integrated learning

All Sharing Dance classroom materials are designed to be nationally relevant, meeting the needs of dance curricula across all provinces and territories, and can be used as a kinesthetic tool for exploring several school subjects, including language, science, geography, and more!
