School Residencies-Bring Charlotte Ballet to your school!
Charlotte Ballet offers three residency options for schools wishing to have our professional dancers and/or teaching artists spend a day, week or month(s) at your school in a residency program. The options are repertory residencies, arts integrated residencies and Dance a Story workshops.
DANCE A STORY WORKSHOPS are fun, interactive 45-minute workshop held at your school. Appropriate for elementary-age students, Dance A Story integrates kinesthetic learning with reading, introducing children to the world of ballet through classic stories, creative movement and music, including a “prop/costume” show and tell. Intended for Preschool-2nd grade.
REPERTORY RESIDENCIES are an opportunity for dance classes, grades 6-12 , to learn Charlotte Ballet’s riveting repertory. Classic and contemporary ballets serve as a catalyst, inspiring student learning through Charlotte Ballet’s repertoire.
ARTS INTEGRATED RESIDENCIES explore topics from language arts, mathematics, science or social studies curricula, through dance composition and performance for K-12 students. (Examples of previous topics: Plant growth cycle, ELA (Onomatopoeia)
