The mission of Dance Another World is to serve non-native English speakers from lower socioeconomic areas and teach them to communicate through creative movement using teaching methods of Content-Based Instruction and Total Physical Response (TPR).
Founded in 2014, Dance Another World is an English language immersion program taught through dance. Serving non-native English speaking students from lower-socioeconomic areas, students learn to communicate through creative movement.
Dance Another World works with organizations such as Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) in the Austin Independent School District and with Cedars International Academy Charter School. In our AISD programs, we assist students with homework help and offer a healthy snack provided by our nutritional sponsors, Whole Foods Market. A full list of our partners and allies as well as sponsors, can be found here.
Our program touches communities in every part of Austin, helping to provide a safe environment for children to learn English and build confidence. To date, our Dance Another World staff has taught more than 2500 students ranging in ages from 5 to 16.
Dance Another World is a registered 501c (3) non-profit organization
