MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN CHICAGO SCHOOLS
Jazz Dance/Science & Health is a curriculum-based science and health program integrating dance classes with the Chicago Public Schools health and science curriculum. The program is comprised of 16 one hour dance classes taught to students in four CPS schools. In each school, two dance classes per week are taught for eight weeks each during our residencies. The concentrations of this residency program, which are basic anatomy, nutrition, relationship of body systems, and avoiding injury, are designed for 4th, 5th and 7th grades.
Giordano Dance Ticket Program serves thousands of area students and families from the communities and organizations listed above with free performance tickets.
From April to June, GDC dancers lead 300+ Jazz Dance/Science & Health classes for over 450 CPS students in grades 3, 4, and 5. These students are taught about the skeletal system, muscles, nutrition, and more. These lessons are then translated into understanding of how the body works together through jazz dance.
