Residencies to New Jersey dance teachers and organizations, including companies and ensembles, to enhance dance education in elementary schools throughout the state. First-time applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. Program focuses include internal capacity development, curriculum development, and residency implementation. Residencies engage professionals to provide accessible dance experiences to schoolchildren in New Jersey.

Dance to Learn (DTL) aims to advance dance education in public and private elementary schools across New Jersey. With Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA) at the forefront, the intent of DTL is to promote equitable access to dance experiences for historically excluded and systematically marginalized populations. Participation in DTL involves the nurturing of dance companies/ensembles and teaching artists to be more informed about how to create equitable teaching and learning environments that intentionally connect to the cultural nuances and lived experiences of students.

For the 22-23 school year, DNJ is providing Dance to Learn Residency Grants to dance organizations and individual teaching artists to engage in a continuum of learning and teaching comprising three applicable components: Internal Capacity Development, Curriculum Development, and Residency Implementation.

  1. Internal Capacity Development - Grant funds to be used to support dance companies/ensembles or individual teaching artists’ participation in anti-racism, anti-oppression, gender and identity, and accessibility workshops and professional development training provided by DNJ & YA and additional organization partners as available.
  2. Curriculum Development for Grades 2-5 - Grant funds to be used for dance companies/ensembles or individual teaching artists to investigate and create a dance residency curriculum centered in the language and skills of their dance practice using the DTL curriculum as a mapping and grounding space.
  3. Residency Implementation for Grades 2-5 - Grant funds to be used for dancecompanies/ensembles or individual teaching artists to implement DTL curriculum.
