Master Class Tour


 


The Master Class Tour (MCT) is an extension of DWave in Motion’s outreach program that brings no-cost master classes to NYC public schools. This program specifically targets students of low-income families and schools of low socio-economic backgrounds.  MCT aims to bring dance classes to students who do not have access to dance or physical education in their regular school day. All students that participate are eligible for scholarships to study at Dancewave during the school year and/or summer.

The goal of the Master Class Tour  is two-fold:

  • To plant the seeds for future dance programs in schools that lack dance, gyms, or physical education.
  • To collaborate with school dance teachers to identify enthusiastic dancers for Dancewave’s Scholarship Initiative!

Each Spring, schools are invited to apply for a FREE master class. Classes are held at each school’s convenience, during school or after-school hours.  School administrators or dance teachers choose a dance genre. Master class choices are African, Salsa, Modern, Jazz, Hip Hop, Chinese or Ballet!

To bring a free master class to your school, please contact dwave@dancewave.org or call 718-522-4696.
