Dance for Every Child

Arts Integration Workshop for Classroom Teachers and Teaching Artists
The Dance Foundation, Birmingham, Alabama

A major part of the Alabama Dance Festival includes workshops and resource materials for classroom teachers. On Friday, January 13, 2023, P12 educators can attend a day-long training session and receive Continuing Education credit.

The Dance for Every Child workshop offers instructional strategies to effectively bring creative movement into any P12 classroom. This professional development program is designed for educators who want to utilize arts integration in their classrooms but need practical methods and resources.

This is an unprecedented time for Artists, Educators and Administrators, and a time which calls for deep engagement, developing new skill sets, a radical imagination and a call to action for equality through the arts and arts education.
