Students in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area can participate in one, or a series of dance workshops. KCFAA Dance Workshops reach more than 20,000 students annually.
A KCFAA teaching artist conducts student workshops on Modern and Jazz techniques, two primary dance forms that shape many of Alvin Ailey’s ballets. The workshop includes warm-up, jazz isolations, floor work, stretching, strengthening and choreographic instruction. Students learn elements of dance (mental alertness, sequencing, listening, following directions, attention to detail) and how they relate to developing successful life skills.
