Course Description

The purpose of Repertory Dance Company is to give the students enrolled the opportunity to build a functional dance company. There is an entrepreneurial component, as well as artistic and pedagogical components. The Company’s goal  is to create programming for the elementary and middle schools in our community in order to facilitate dance exposure and education.

Assignment: to read through the Wisconsin Arts Board (WAB) power point on applying for a grant in the arts at the state level.  We will have a guest speaker from WAB come to class and then the students will work in teams to apply for a (fictitious) grant.  

The speaker form the WAB will be reviewing them and will send me feedback as well as which team would have received the grant.
