Through the dance experience the dancer gains self-confidence and a sensitivity toward others and the environment. Regardless of the age or circumstance, child or adult, everything in life can be enriched, explored, and discovered through dance.
Teachers K-12 can have the opportunity to experience implementing specific Hawaii Fine Arts Content and Performance Standards into their classroom curriculum.
