CTB works in partnership with schools to provide in-school, after school and summer dance classes. All classes are taught by a team of 3 – a lead teaching artist, assistant teaching artist and live musician. We work with over 25 schools and 3,500 children every year across Colorado and in Nyarit, Mexico. Our programs contribute to a healthier, higher achieving student body. By experiencing and thriving in CTB programs children are learning to listen, focus and take direction, and their excitement about learning itself is ignited. CTB teaches resilience in the face of setbacks, stamina, motivation and tenacity to work hard for a final performance. The creativity and risk taking involved builds strong character and self esteem.
CTB’s in-school program provides the same advantages that peers in better resourced schools are receiving, thus leveling the playing field and creating greater opportunities for success. CTB’s “low threshold, high ceilings” philosophy creates access to quality programs for high need populations, while increasing educational equity more broadly. This in turn raises up the whole community.
