School Performance Project

The School Performance Project is a community-focused project under the direction of Madeline Cantor, Dance Program Director. It visits schools every fall in the Philadelphia area, reaching 1,000 to 1,500 children each year.

The ensemble introduces the children to dance through a program of original choreography supported by commissioned music and costuming. Interested students are expected to have some experience in dance, enthusiasm for performance, and an interest in community engagement. Students are selected after an initial group meeting and movement session in the fall. The Project is available for academic or P.E. credit. Contact Madeline Cantor for more information,
