During this time of uncertainty, we hope to keep our dancers moving in any way they can! Our staff is bringing dance from their home to yours, for dancers of all ages! Whether you have experienced one of our programs or have just been pointed in our direction, these videos are made for you and your at-home needs! Feel free to reach out about this video series, or donate to keep programming possible for our dancers. Even a few dollars helps us to provide for our teaching artists and musicians during this unforeseen time. Enjoy!

Music Lessons

Join Mr Ron in a music lesson great for all ages! Learn about rhythm and the importance of the beat. We invite you to get creative in finding rhythm instruments at home! Then, add words to create a fun song about buzzing bees!

Preschool and Kindergarten

Join Miss Erica in a lesson about feelings or emotions! Using Dr Seuss' book, "My Many Colored Days", we use colors, animals, and movement to explore our feelings. We, of course, begin and end the lesson with the Hello/Goodbye Songs that our students love!

Miss Shauna (and some helpers!) lead us through an extremely fun set of sequencing, or Stacking 8's! Our PreK classes learn that dance is counted in 8's, and they help us remember the sequence, or order, of our steps!

COMING SOON!

1st -5th Grades

Join Miss Erica in the 1920's! Lincoln Elementary 3rd graders learned this piece for our show "I've Got the Music in Me!" that has been postponed. During the 20's, the Charleston was a hugely energetic and popular dance. We can say it was also very popular in our classrooms this year--give it a try!

Join Miss Shauna in the 1940's! Preston Elementary 3rd graders learned this piece for our show "I've Got the Music in Me!" that has been postponed. During WWII, entertainment was needed overseas, so we got great music and moves like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy!

Join Miss Alice in the 1950's! Silver Lake Elementary 3rd graders learned this piece for our show "I've Got the Music in Me!" that has been postponed. Learn the twist and hand jive popular during the time of Rock n Roll! This piece would have included our groovy, tap dancing Jojo the Jukebox in our show!

Join Miss Kathleen in the 1960's! DeWitt Elementary 3rd graders learned this piece for our show "I've Got the Music in Me!" that has been postponed. This choreography relies heavily on the influence of American Sign Language, as well as the Peace Movement of the 60's. 

Join Miss Darcie in the 1960's! Richardson Elementary 3rd graders learned this piece for our show "I've Got the Music in Me!" that has been postponed. The 60's also brought us the fabulous groove of Motown music! Get ready to move, this piece will really get your heart pumping!

Join Miss Brittany in a classic ArtSparks warm up! It is important to get our bodies warm and our muscles moving before we dance. You'll also be led through the ASL (American Sign Language) version of our Core Four, which is the ArtSparks motto that applies to all areas of our life!
