Groundworks Dance Theater has started. A special thanks to the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation for their generous grant of 14,000 dollars. Without their help the program wouldn't be possible.

GroundWorks will conduct a 14-week long residency to support and reinforce classroom instruction in Math, Science and ELA, by using movement to help students embrace their learning and retain their knowledge. In place of where it currently says - Dancers working with 4th and 5th grade integrating curriculum standard like science and math into dance and self expression.
