The aim of the Prep Dance Outreach Program is to ensure the education and joy of dance to the greater Seattle community. We believe everyone deserves to experience movement and understand how it can enrich life.

Classes are offered in creative dance, ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and choreography. If your school or organization is interested in partnering with our outreach program please email us at preparatorydance@cornish.edu or call us at 206.726.5034

Childhaven

For the last five years at Childhaven our instructors have implemented movement classes for young survivors of abuse and neglect. These children, ages 3 to 5 years old, have gained a better sense of social responsibility and physical awareness through movement which helps prepare them for kindergarten integration.
