About Education & Outreach

LDT dancers teaching students to move like the snake from “Jump, Frog, Jump!”

LDT has developed educational programs designed to highlight dance as a means to health, fun and enrichment. Programming includes on-school-time assemblies, workshops and residencies. LDT works intensely with schools and community groups to develop age-appropriate, dynamic programs that explore dance while meeting the needs of the students or participants. All of LDT’s programs are designed to fulfill the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards for Visual and Performing Arts. In an effort to help thwart childhood obesity, LDT has also integrated lessons on nutrition and wellness into its programs.
