SPdp + SS Outreach

SPdp & Soy Sos is committed to providing compelling and comprehensive dance experiences within and beyond the walls of the studio with programing such as classes, dance clubs, workshops, and master classes, as well as theme driven academic and dance integration opportunities that explore and challenge social/political world concepts and issues. We’re excited to have you join us on our journey exploring:

House music and culture (FLOWERZ)
Soul music and emotional expression through movement (sol)
Symbiosis via the literary works of Octavia Butler (sym.)
Personal Identity in relation to Blackness in America (...on being...)


We’ve devised a study guide to best assist educators in preparing students for their experience with SPdp & Soy Sos both during performance and in our educational workshops.

Integration

This residency involves the study of dance along with a specialized curriculum that allows for the infusion of certain academic standards. With varied dance styles and techniques, we take students through PA academic standard-based goals as they relate to Science, Technology, English, and Math. Thus helping teach difficult academic concepts that support a variety of Learning styles.



Theme and Technique

This session uses project-based learning or aesthetic training and includes a rigorous study of dance technique and terms around a diverse art anchor workpiece that will provide a theme for choreography. This is similar to project-based learning; where students take part in dissecting the anchor piece as a community and then collaborate with the choreography and structure of the dance utilizing actual dance technique and dance terms learned during the first half of each class. This is important to begin to create artists that can have an opinion about art and can develop art based on their opinion.

This allows for all students the opportunity to feel connected to dance even if they aren’t dancers. This program reflects the uniqueness of PAS and the collaboration of Staycee and Herman Pearl. This program drives creativity like no other because All Art will support the final dance project/ celebration of learning.
