ImmersiveThrough immersion and Content Based Instruction (CBI), we teach English through dance. The ITESL Journal defines CBI as “a teaching method that emphasizes learning about something rather than learning about language” and “an effective method of combining language and content learning.”

In addition to staying active in every class, most students are provided an additional healthy snack, provided by our Nutritional Sponsors, Whole Foods Market.
Fun!In Dance Another World, we know that a dance is a story. We read and write our own stories and then portray them through dance. In addition to English and dance, students learn confidence in their ability to express themselves, and learn respect for their minds, bodies and souls.
