they learn to master the choreography of their lives."
--New Yorkers For Dance
For that one spokesperson whose "goal is to see dance in every school," may I humbly suggest one way to manifest that dream is to begin with Jitterbug! in the Classroom. Based on the book of the annotated dancical, Jitterbug! in the Classroom is a series of free Educator Manuals/Student Questionnaires for high school and college students written to address the National Core Arts Standards for Dance, Theatre, Music (Ensemble & Composition strands), Literature, and History/Social Studies. If used online, students can click links that open historic multimedia examples of dance and music from the Harlem Renaissance and the Swing Music era. You can view them here.
