Project Description

Oakland Ballet Company: You Can Dance!

at Howard Elementary School

Oakland Ballet Company’s You Can Dance program is an in-school dance residency designed to help fill the void in dance education. Students will begin with a performance from OBC’s professional dancers at an assembly where they will also receive an interactive choreography lesson. From there, students will receive 10 lessons over 5 weeks that include dance warm-ups, movement games tied to the classroom curriculum, and the creation of their own dance that will be performed at the final presentation.
