Dignity Through Dance

We significantly increase our students English language skills via a structured but highly creative and engaging dance technique called cognitive content based instruction.

KLRU Feature


Through 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.”


According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, “Only one in three children are physically active every day”. In addition to staying active in every class, most students are provided an additional healthy snack, provided by our Nutritional Sponsors, Whole Foods Market.


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.
