Our programming at Rhythm n Dance is a high quality educational program that develops youth and aspiring artists through a curriculum that integrates the performing arts through cultural ethnography and traditional dance pedagogy. We aim to develop our students from an artistic and socially responsible perspective. They complete our programming as independent, cooperative, responsible and creative young adults with a lifelong interest and ability in learning and the arts. We believe that these skills and qualities will prepare our students to pursue further educational goals and allow them to contribute to the life and well being of society as a whole.
Our vision includes the belief that:
A strong cultural arts education program unlocks and supports the artistic potential of our students.
The best discipline comes from a commitment to the educational process and shared goals.
Cultural performing arts programming encourages each individual to work in a creative, cooperative and collaborative manner while promoting independent thinking.
Students learn best in a supportive and creative environment placed within a firm framework of high standards in teaching and learning.
We offer classes and workshops in traditional and contemporary styles of dance, as well as workshops in traditional West African drumming.
