We also offer afterschool tutoring, mentoring, and coaching to our dance students, as well as non-dance students who have academic gaps.

We would love for interns to come and assist us with lesson planning, curriculum design, tutoring, behavioral managements, physical recreational activities, teaching a class/craft, leading activities, helping with homework and tutoring, during after school hours. The days and times would be Monday thru Friday from 3:30-5:30pm.
