"I love that you change up what we are doing every day and then review what we have already done."
2nd Grade Student at Sterling School
"Carolina Dance Collaboration has partnered with LiveWell Greenville to bring an unique experience to your children. CDC understands the importance of fueling your body with right foods and how that enables the body to move more efficiently and effectively. While teaching the children the importance of movement in a fun way, they also educate them about the importance of making healthy food choices. CDC is partnering with LWG to make the healthy choice the easy choice. "
"Within the classroom we read a lot about dance and society and how dance shapes today's culture. Those. lessons are effective but without hands on physical knowledge the students aren't able to fully grasp the concepts.. Since Iv'e been doing dance workshops with the Carolina Dance Collaborative the students are not only able to understand by reading about the impact of dance in society but through embodied knowledge, physically enacting some of the movements. When we go back to the classroom and read about it it doesn't just make sense cognitively but physically as well."

"We were most impressed with the control CDC had over the kids. The structure was amazing and the high expectations of behavior made the kids rise to meet them. My students looked forward to coming each day. They were excited and felt proud of what they were learning."

"Carolina Dance Collaborative recognizes the needs of the groups that Applied Theatre Center works with and have brought distinctive and effective movement programming to them. They understand the delicate balance of accommodating marginalized people and also challenging them to do more than they think possible. CDC brings a commitment to quality dance education that I wholeheartedly recommend.."

"Thank you for letting Kodiak and I 'observe' your adaptive dance group. That was, hands down, the best part of my week. What a beautiful group of people! And wow, I love what you're doing! You did a fantastic job of challenging the group, but making it fun and accessible. So, so great. What an asset to our community you are."
