All children should have the experience of dance in their lives. Chance to Dance, a program of Dance Alliance of Rhode Island gives children a 23 week program in their schools in which they learn to create dances based on the year’s theme while learning basic dance movement. Weekly classes are led by a specially trained teacher and an accompanist. The culminating event offers participants the opportunity to perform at the Providence Performing Arts Center (PPAC) in Late May. After 33 years providing the children of Rhode Island the Chance to Dance we are proud to say that this is the longest in-school program in the state. Ten to thirteen schools per year has been the standard number participating. More support – more schools – more dance!!!
