Arts and Education Residencies

The CAP program tailors residency content for each school, providing custom-designed programs that embrace Ballet Hispánico’s pedagogical standards, goals, and philosophy, and matches each school with an outstanding teaching artist who is invested in developing our community’s cultural and educational talents. Our program draws from the New York City Department of Education’s Blueprint for Teaching and Learning in the Arts: Dance Grades PreK-12, addressing five strands of Learning in Dance:
  • Dance Making
  • Developing Dance Literacy
  • Making Connections
  • Working with Community and Cultural Resources
  • Exploring Careers and Lifelong Learning

The residency itself consists of weekly lessons during the fall or spring terms, which include a curriculum integration project (e.g. writing, drawing), usually presented during the culminating performance by the students engaged in our program.

All residencies include:
  • planning meeting
  • Weekly 45-minute lessonwith a teaching artist
  • reflection meeting with classroom teachers
  • culminating performance for friends, teachers, and parents 

For more information about our programs, please contact our Community Engagement Director. In addition, please e-mail our Development Department to find out how your donation can help make these programs possible.
