Peridance Contemporary Dance Company's Teaching Artists Enrichment Programs are accessible to all schools in the tri-state area. Led by its high-caliber dancers, the Company exposes K-12 students to different styles of dance through customized curricula, promoting bodily awareness and building self-confidence.

- In-School and After-School Series take place over a span of 2-3 months and are offered for students K-8.
- A Meet the Artists Performance usually takes place in a school assembly setting, in which our professional dancers perform and conduct a Q&A session.
- Dance Break is a single workshop that begins with a short demonstration by our dancers and ends with an engaging interactive lesson that focuses on exercising personal creativity.

"Peridance Contemporary Dance Company brought dance, but so much more to our school assembly... The performances were innovative, beautiful and inspiringâ€¦. Our students were completely engaged from start to finish, and even had the opportunity to participate as audience members, connecting with both their bodies and with their minds. Thank you, Peridance!"
