Our Core Values
Explore, Educate, and Provide Opportunity Through The Arts of Dance
What is the I.Dance Education program?
I.Dance is an arts education program that not only teaches dance, but it educates students from a worldwide perspective. Our curriculum focuses on three pillars in which we have adopted within our education standards. The three pillars are rigor, world dance academia, and opportunity. We currently serve through:
In-school dance education programs
After-school dance education programs
Community Dance Class and Workshops
Along with our standards, our curriculum pushes discipline, technical proficiency, and performance techniques. Our instructors provide quality instructions that build skill, confidence, and professionalism within students.
IDC challenges students by marrying movement and dance education together in a way that caters to both the visual and physical learners. From creative movement to ballet, IDC educates using tools that expose students to the historical origin of dance cultures within regions all over the world.
Our program challenges students both artistically and physically. Dance is the perfect supplement for physical education as it develops students agility, core strength, coordination and teaches the value of teamwork.
Iibada has been serving the Indianapolis community for almost 30 years. We value the education, opportunities and exposure dance brings to our Indy culture. IDC wants to raise the bar when it comes to dance education by seeking partnerships with both public and charter schools to build both young artist and a culture of awareness that appreciates and supports the art form.
