Monsanto Dance Education Residency Program
Dance St. Louis brings teaching artists from our world-class dance companies for intensive three-week residencies each semester, at no cost to the students involved, culminating in free attendance at matinee performances. In the 2012-2013 season, residencies with Pilobolus and Preston Miller Project will reach about 220 under-served middle and high school students at urban schools and community centers each semester. Teaching artists present three weeks of classes that include not only dance technique but career exploration, information on healthy life styles, and links across curriculum.
Hear what students from Central Visual & Performing Arts High School in St. Louis, Missouri had to say about the impact of the residency program and how it has changed their lives.
