Project Topic: Youth Engagement
Project Description: (1) INSPIRE (1 middle & 1 high school), is a 2-month dance mentorship program designed to inspire collaboration amongst students to solve community issues. Themes addressed: positivity, mentorship between generations, youth empowerment, and creative expression through live performance. (2) SMART MOVES (1 elementary & 1 middle school) is a 1-month movement and literacy program designed to teach language skills through movement. Linking movement and literacy can enhance and develop gross & fine motor coordination skills, creative expression, social interaction, problem solving, and rhythm skills. Each student will receive a book. (3) TMP will perform at all 3 schools and give a 2-day dance workshop at the elementary and middle school.
Community Engagement Strategy: As part of "INSPIRE", the final product of the program will be a live performance showcasing the students work. This is a free performance and is open to the public.
