School & Community Residencies
Eight-week-long programs at schools and community organizations where dance + STEM come together in electrifying tech-infused dance performances.
Get excited about STEM! Our eight-week-long programs bring dance and STEM together in electrifying performances. Our programs are available to elementary, middle, and high schools and CBOs that serve a majority underrepresented youth.
We bring in dance and STEM professionals to inspire and work with you to create tech-infused dance performances presented live in front of friends and family. Get confident, dream big, make it happen, and discover how STEM classes and careers are for you.

Our ImpactOur results are backed by published research from the NYU Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.
