Our programs are organized under the theme of Music and Dance. Each of our five signature programs provide unique insight into a specific era and its correlating genre of musical influence. Students are encouraged to explore the impact music had on social, cultural and economic conditions. Through these lessons, students journey through the beat of the drum, a hum of a tune, a tap of a foot to learn the story of the truly original American art forms. Programs were developed to incorporate and align with Common Core standards in English, Mathematics, and Science.
