Design Dance students are smart, strong, and kind.  They know that sharing their stories builds empathy and they’re not afraid to be courageous. This year, Design Dance students will write, choreograph and perform pieces inspired by the theme of acceptance and the many ways it can change the communities we live in.  

Design Dance Poetry in Motion pairs poetry writing and dance for a month long in-school program that fosters real change in elementary and high school students.  Students learn to write alongside renowned poets and create original dances with the guidance of professional choreographers.  Each program concludes with a school-wide assembly that builds courage, self-awareness and connection throughout the entire school community.
