Dance to Learn

Did you know that the PS5 2nd-5th graders have movement and dance class built into their everyday curriculum? Through the support of the PS5 Administration and a grant from the Dodge Foundation, Nimbus Dance Works  comes into the classroom to work with students on math, science, history and more, exploring it all through movement. Students are given the opportunity to use their 'creative voice' through dance and movement. Success is measured via their own standards - not test scores, grades or external measures. Students are enriched artistically and receive a cultural experience that will remain with them for a lifetime.

See the program in action with this video by our very own Mr. DeCarlo!

The PS5 PTA helps raise funds to sustain this program.  Look for some fundraiser announcements this fall! If you would like to be a part of the fundraising and event committee for Dance to Learn please email the PTA at jerseycityps5pta@gmail.com
