DCD provides four educational programs covering Primary, Junior, Intermediate and Senior curriculum levels. Each program is cross-curricular covering elements of dance, social studies, history and geography. These programs help teachers cover the theory, as opposed to the physical, aspects of the dance curriculum. Please download the Education Brochure (below) for more details.
* All Education Docents have had a police check.
Education Kits based on the programs outlined in the Education Brochure for Primary, Junior, Intermediate and Senior levels are currently in development and will be tested in the 2016/17 school year. Once testing is complete, the kits will be available to rent by schools anywhere in Canada. Kits will arrive in a sturdy touring box with all required materials and teacher resources. Teacher support will be available by contacting Dance Collection Danse.
Please join our education list to receive information once the Travelling Program is available by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Dance Collection Danse would like to acknowledge that the land on which we work is the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, the Anishnaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation. It has been a site of human activity, including dance, for at least 15,000 years and we are grateful to all the caretakers, both recorded and unrecorded, of this land and of Turtle Island. Today, the meeting place of Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and dance in the community, on this territory.
