Educational Partnerships – Move to Learn


Serving over 15,000 individuals each year, CCD’s Community Education Programs are some of the most comprehensive in the Denver metro area and are praised for their collaborative approach and highly skilled instructors. These programs reflect CCD’s deep commitment to collaboration and making lives better through dance.

Elementary School Partnerships

The Colorado Conservatory of Dance’s Title I Elementary Partnerships bring year-long arts experiences to nearly 2,500 students in four public schools in high-need neighborhoods each year. More than 80% of the students in these schools fall below the federal poverty line and up to 25% are classified as homeless. Studies show that students with high levels of arts participation outperform students lacking the arts in all areas of competency.  The impact is even more significant in students with low-income backgrounds. CCD’s two-year residencies provide the opportunity for students to gain confidence through an in-depth process that merges dance with each school’s specific curricular priorities.
