Arts Integration with DCDC
DCDC uses techniques from all cultures to integrate a physical and artistic exchange to aide in the teaching and learning of traditionally academic subjects, such as mathematics, reading and comprehension and geography, as well as critical thinking and problem solving. Early education programs, such as Building Blocks to Dance and Dancing to the Curriculum have earned DCDC their outstanding reputation for use of culture, rhythm, pattern and movement to enhance the learning process. DCDC will work with you to develop a program and select a teaching artist to suit your academic and schedule needs.
