    Dance Exploration Hallmarks of Service

    Creating the Leaders of tomorrow through Performance Arts Education

    At Dance Exploration, we believe that dance and the performance arts are not merely a fun and recreational outlet for self expression. Dance and performance arts are also a very important tool in the development and growth of children. At Dance Exploration we strive to teach more than just great dance classes! Our goal is to teach children concepts and themes, creative problem solving skills, teamwork and leadership, and an increased sense of self-expression and confidence. We do this through our ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum along with our 5 Methods of Arts Exploration™. These methods have been designed to teach the whole child from preschool to elementary school to ensure our students’ continued success in school and in life.

    Performance Arts in Every School
    Dance Exploration’s ultimate goal is to collaborate with all early childhood education centers, schools, community and recreation centers. We look to train and educate childhood educators on ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum principles and the 5 Methods of Performance Arts™ to ensure that performing arts can be used as a tool for teaching and educating more children. Through the Dance to Learn® University Program and selling our Curriculum models to educational institutions and dance studios, we can ensure that the ‘Dance to Learn!’® Curriculum can reach kids nation wide!

    Every Child should have the Chance to Dance!
    At Dance Exploration we believe that every child should be given an opportunity to experience dance and performance arts regardless of social status, gender, race, or ability! We make our classes available to everyone through financial aid services, scholarships and payment plans. In 2013 we started our ‘Dance to Learn!’® in Title 1 Schools initiative designed to raise money for Title 1 schools in Colorado that needed financial assistance in funding our programs.
