Protect children in dance!
Dance studio owners and staff are concerned about the media onslaught from dance hypersexualization. In years past, dance studios lacked adequate tools to address the challenges presented by the over-sexualization of children in dance training and performance. But not now. DA:NCE gives teachers practical advice on how to begin a dialogue in their school, studio or community setting around age-appropriate dance experiences for children. Our materials are researched and educationally based and can be shared with colleagues and adults throughout the industry. As a result, community and colleague connection, educator knowledge, and informed studio leadership become the keys to educating the public about this trend as dance studios usher in healthy movement choices for a culture that needs guidance.
Whether you are committed to teaching age appropriate dance, or you need resources to articulate to choreographers and teachers in your studio the importance of age appropriate dance, these free resources can help you get your message across.
