Outreach and Education

About Us

Engaging Outreach and Education

Dance of Hope takes pride in offering tailored educational experiences for students of all ages that suit the specific needs of each school/community we visit. Our K-12 programs provide unique opportunities for students to engage directly with our touring performers and we promise an exciting blend of education, socialization, and pure joy outside the classroom. Through interactive general assembly performances, classroom Q&A sessions, and hands-on workshops in singing, drumming, dance, and costume design, students embark on a dynamic learning journey.

Program Highlights

  • School Assemblies:
    Our dynamic school assemblies are tailored to specific age groups, delivering an unforgettable experience that combines captivating performances with meaningful educational content. These assemblies ignite curiosity and inspire a deeper understanding of global cultures.
  • Classroom Visits:
    Our engaging classroom visits bring the vibrancy of African culture directly to your school. Students have the opportunity to interact with our talented performers, ask questions, and participate in hands-on activities.
  • Student Outreach Programs:
    Designed for extended engagement, our programs span 3-5 days and encompass a variety of activities. These immersive experiences can take place in a single school or across multiple schools within a community.
