The Current Status of Dance Education in US Schools

All 50 states have adopted arts standards; however, dance is extremely far behind in fulfilling those expectations due to:

> Lack of access

> Lack of opportunity   

The statistics below are based on the 14 states in the USA that reported arts data in the 2018-2019 school year. This represents 29.6% of the total population of school age children in the USA or 14.9 million students.

 

1%

of schools are offering dance classes.

Enrollment tends to be focused in urban school districts.

When a school offers dance classes

12.8%

of students, on average, participate.

This number is higher in elementary schools and lower in high schools.

 

47x

more students are enrolled in music and visual arts classes.

(This data is complex and will be updated in Fall 2022 when more states are expected to report their numbers.)

The Crelata Solution

Crelata provides easy-to-implement online dance classes for your school, whether you are a dance teacher seeking additional resources or a school that has never had dance classes and needs help getting started. 

Movement is an essential part of educating the whole person. Dance promotes communication skills, self-expression, and confidence that lasts a lifetime as well as increases physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

Crelata is a gateway to student engagement, higher attendance rates, and a positive school climate.

We want to build Crelata with the community in mind, especially the global majority who are often underrepresented and under acknowledged for their brilliant contributions to the world.
