Supplementing arts curriculum with professional Teaching Artists
Pentacle’s In-School Programs provide culturally responsive-sustaining education for K-12 students in topics related to the dance field, inspiring them to explore a range of careers in the performing arts. Building upon our successful model of providing both artistic and career mentorship at the professional level, Pentacle’s In-School Programs are designed to be flexible, fitting the needs of a broad range of partner schools, supplementing their arts curricula, and providing them with mission-driven, socially conscious teaching artists that reflect the diversity of their student body.
