All In School Programs seek to build arts programs, increase teacher skills and knowledge, and use the arts as a tool to support curriculum and inspire learning. In School Programs combine Standards-based arts instruction with social justice pedagogy principles to inspire students to develop character, scholarship and artistic voice to create change. We offer residencies in Poetry, Visual Art, Theater, Dance, Music, and Maker via two different 30 week program models.
Dancing Classrooms programs address several pressing needs simultaneously: the in-school residency provides high quality arts education where it is otherwise lacking, and the extra-curricular programs offer consistent positive engagement with the support of a network of Teaching Artists and peers. Dancing Classrooms provides an equal emotional, cognitive and behavioral education to children of all backgrounds, whether their home lives are chaotic, or organized and protective. By cultivating a positive support network with ballroom dance at the core, Dancing Classrooms’ ultimate goal is to create motivated, engaged students with essential skills for a successful life
Bent on Learning
Over the past 15 years, Bent On Learning has developed a comprehensive yoga program for elementary, middle and high school students throughout New York City. Our curriculum addresses the whole child and develops physical, social and emotional intelligence in our students. Our intervention provides physical activity once or twice per week during the academic day, while circumventing the need for large gyms or playing fields, expensive equipment or special clothing. Additionally, it provides students with opportunities to develop a growth mindset, develop positive relationships with adults and peers, explore self-interests, engage in experiential learning and build self-esteem. All of these skills have been demonstrated to serve as building blocks for academic achievement in students in Pre-K through 12th grade.
