Workshops in Schools: Building the Next Generation

2020 workshops will be announced over the coming weeks.

Why Dance Education is Important

Studies have shown that exercise increases academic ability, but many children don’t feel comfortable in a competitive environment, often avoiding participation in physical activity. Pressure-free and fun-filled, our workshops allow children to explore at their own levels, developing self-confidence and self-awareness along the way. Our programs are innovative and curriculum-based.

Throughout the year, we bring in esteemed local professional dance artists that match student’s specific needs. During the annual Festival weekend, we can provide workshops with Guelph Dance Festival artists from across Canada.

Workshops in Schools Fund

Guelph Dance targets high-risk schools where children may not have access to the emotional, psychological and physical benefits of arts-related activities. We have seen firsthand how our full-day or multiple-day workshops engage children and guide them to a greater understanding of self, creativity, and empowerment. With your support we can reach even more deserving students in our schools. Click here to make a donation to our Workshops in Schools Fund.
