Dancewave offers New York City schools the opportunity to craft an arts in education program for the specific needs of their school curriculum and students abilities. Our residencies encompass a variety of dance genres and ethnic forms, including Ballet, Modern, Creative Movement for children, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, African, Salsa, Flamenco, and Chinese dance. Workshops and residencies are offered both within school hours and/or during after school programs. Our program is available year-round and can last anywhere from a two-day workshop/master class to a year-long residency.
