Future Dance Program

NBT’s Future Dance Program was established in 1993 and currently serves thousands of students each year through its initiatives. By offering free in-school dance instruction and the opportunity to earn scholarships, NBT’s Future Dance Program seeks to expose children from underserved communities to the art form of dance and provide dedicated students with a premiere arts education.

Through the language and movement of dance, NBT’s Future Dance Program Teaching Artists aid to empower our youth to use their bodies to communicate and express ideas. Through commitment and practice, students learn exercises to help build coordination, balance, flexibility, athleticism, strength, self-confidence, rhythm and spatial awareness. Teaching Artists provide students with knowledge in a variety of disciplines which are designed to demonstrate how dance corresponds to the many cultures of our society.

NBT’s Future Dance Program actively engages children in the arts with a goal to establish positive habits at an early age. Students learn to develop a healthy self-esteem and a strong work ethic. With continued donor support, NBT will build and maintain these initiatives and, most importantly, ensure that children are given a chance to dance.
