Creative Dance for Kids

Deborah Slater Dance Theater

(with Anna Greenberg or Meegan Hertensteiner)

By working closely with the teachers and their students, the artists develop movement classes through storytelling and subject investigation that spark children’s personal creativity, natural curiosity, and foster collaboration, empathy and deeper interest and understanding of the world around them. By creating dance classes based on what kids are learning in the classroom, the artists are able to help unlock multiple ways of learning a subject, often turning fear and frustration into fun. Classes for pre-K through fifth grade achieve these goals while aligning the pedagogical aims of the Common Core.
