Story

Dance is so much more - it's a universal language, it's math, it's science, history, physical education and it is art! According to a 2005 Harris Poll commissioned by Americans for the Arts, "93 percent of Americans agree that the arts are vital to providing a well-rounded education for children." It has been proven that this type of children's performing arts program enhances the academic achievement of students.

NC Arts in Action's 16-session in school residency support learning through arts integrated curriculum. We use the unique teaching techniques honed for more than 30 years by arts educator Jacques d'Amboise and the National Dance Institute, who currently reaches over 40,000 children annually in the United States and around the world. NC AIA teaching artists are thoroughly trained in these same techniques in both their initial in-depth training and on-going professional development with NDI techniques that instill discipline, focus, tenacity and a high standard of excellence in elementary school children.

The NC Arts in Action program is a great opportunity for our students. Most of them are not able to participate in after-school activities due to cost barriers. Being able to integrate this program as part of the school day is great for our students. -Principal Carmen Graf, East Garner Elementary School
