Students in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area can participate in dance workshops. KCFAA Dance Workshops reach more than 4,000 students annually.
A KCFAA teaching artist instructs a dance class for your students. The class consists of elements from Modern and Jazz dance techniques, two primary dance forms that shape many of Alvin Ailey’s ballets. The workshop includes warm-up, jazz isolations, floor work, stretching, strengthening and choreographic instruction. Students learn elements of dance (mental alertness, sequencing, listening, following directions, attention to detail) and how they relate to developing successful life skills.
