Arts Activities Support
ACHF Arts Access
25 underserved Burnsville Junior High School students (including grades 6-9) will register, participate and perform in the activities of the eight week Modern Dance Project. Of those registered, there will be 90% participation rate from the first workshop day through the Modern Dance Project Community Concert at the end of the workshop. The Community Concert which features members of the Modern Dance Project will reflect a diverse audience of parents, family members, educators/support staff and community members. Evaluation will be documented with online registrations taken prior to the start of the Workshop. Attendance will be taken on each workshop day, at the dress rehearsal, and concert. Parent volunteers will count the number of attendees in the theater the night of the Pay as you are Able" Concert and a short survey will be included in the program which asks, "How did you hear about the Community Concert?" Data collected will be documented and used to determine project success."
Project success was based on discovery of modern dance movement. 90% of the participants had never attended a dance class before or performed dance on a stage. Area dance centers were invited to augment the Modern Dance Project performers for the Community Concert. 50% of those identified in the proposal participated. Two additional centers were invited and also participated.
