DANCING WITH THE ROCKY VIEW SCHOOL DISTRICT

We know that RVS is a unique community of schools committed to offering students a relevant and stimulating inquiry-based learning experience. 
We know that RVS creates adaptable, collaborative, and Globally Aware learners who are prepared to contribute to a rapidly changing world.

RVS is UNIQUE and that is why we have developed a UNIQUE dance program experience to match your goals.

21st CENTURY COMPETENCIES

Critical Thinking, Problem-Solving, Innovation, Communication, Collaboration, Self-Directed learning, and Global Awareness are all central the Dance Education pedagogy and the SK Dance Experience. Read more

MINDFULNESS and MENTAL HEALTH

Bringing attention to one’s body and breath is central to both dance and Mindfulness. The two are practiced in tandem and through integrated mindfulness exercises and cues, we invite students to step in to the present moment as joyful, focused, and powerful learners!  

CROSS-CURRICULAR

We now offer EXPANDED Residencies that support educators in taking the SK Dance program BEYOND the gym! This residency add-on includes Educator Resource Packages filled with opportunities for cross-curricular expansion and inquiry based learning.

NO MORE TRAVEL FEES (or $400)*

Yup, you read that right. The #1 programming barrier for schools located outside of the city are instructor travel fees… that stops now! We will pay the travel fees for you.  If Travel Fees aren’t a barrier for your school, we’ll reduce the program price by $400**.  Amazing right?! 

*Applicable on 5+-day residencies for up to a maximum of $400.
**Make sure to mention this discount when booking

EN FRANCAIS? OUI.

There is no need to interrupt your school’s mandate when inviting an Artist-in-Residence to explore dance with your students. Just ask for an SK Program… En Francais OR En Espanol 😉

LARGE CLASSES? NO PROBLEM.

We are well aware of the explosive growth occurring in Alberta’s rural communities and that’s why we are committed to working together with RVS to accommodate the realities of large class sizes! Large classes? No problem.

“Just wanted to thank you so much! The instructor was amazing with all the students from K-Gr. 8. His professional manner, enthusiasm and knowledge was contagious and everyone absolutely loved him!” – Banded Peak School
