Colorado Ballet's Education and Community Engagement Department wants to make it as low-cost, flexible,
and as simple as possible for teachers to support their student’s learning. Out of this desire, we have created a
program that not only meets those needs but also helps improve creativity, social and emotional skill development,
and physical health.
Join the Every Body M.O.V.E. program, a 16-week virtual workshop series that includes two, 2-5 minute, regularly occurring movement-based videos per week for elementary school students. These videos are available in two tracks (K-2nd & 3rd-5th) as support materials for teachers to be used in class or as assignments for students independently and cover diverse subjects to support students and curriculum.
Our brains need movement now more than ever as screen time increases. This offering is unique to teachers and competitive with the existing online options because it allows for a continued partnership with a local cultural and performing arts organization.
The potential for this experience to connect to other experiences is vast; not only does our content connect to schools' curriculum, the experience begins just one month after schools will have had the opportunity to watch The Nutcracker and may want to continue their journey learning about dance by experiencing movement for themselves.
Fall Semester: Sign-up during the spring semester of the previous school year (Jan.-May) or during the prior summer (June-July).
Spring Semester: Sign-up during the fall semester (Aug.-Dec.)
The video series is valued at $640 per 32-video track ($20/video). For both tracks, fees of $1,280 result in access to all 64 videos allowing each grade K-5th to participate and receive 32 videos over 16 weeks for all students in each class. This breaks down to less than $3.00 per student*!
