We #LoveTeaching Artists!

February 14-21 is #LoveTeaching Week, and we love our teaching artists! Teachers are where the pedal of arts education meets the metal of the classroom. Thank you to everyone who inspires, motivates, and cares for kids in the classroom. Author John Steinbeck wrote: “I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. It might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.” Teaching is not an easy job, whether it’s eight hours in a classroom, or 60 minutes after school. But it’s because of the dedication and love that our teaching artists put into their work that kids in the Bay Area have the opportunity to learn Piano, World Percussion, Modern Salsa Dance, and many more invaluable and fun skills. So here’s to our teachers! Thank you for all your hard work!   Please follow and like...

This month we observe Black History Month and celebrate the rich history of African and diasporic music and dance. Later this month, as our Spring music enrichment classes start, students in the Bay Area will have the opportunity to learn African Dance, Diasporic Dance, Haitian Dancing and Drumming, World Percussion, Hip Hop Dance, and many more subjects that exemplify the diversity of dance and music in the Bay Area and beyond. If you would like to experience African-American culture in the Bay Area this February, there are many events all month in San Francisco and the East Bay. There are countless ways to observe Black History Month through music and dance! What are your favorite ways to celebrate Black History Month? Tell us in the comments!       Please follow and like...
