Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall - 2006

Funded in January, 2006: $35000 for 1 years
The Dana grant allowed The Van Wezel to identify and train teaching artists from rural Florida counties to work in the classroom.  Instructors from the Kennedy Center Partners in Education trained teams in developing arts integration lessons.  These six elementary teams, each representing a school, and consisting of four classroom teachers, one arts specialist, and one school administrator, attended development workshops in music, dance, and creative drama and worked in the participating teachers’ classrooms, modeling and co-teaching.
