Mile Zero instructors will take over your school’s physical education classes for a day, a week, and up to a two-week residency. We can accommodate budgets and time frames specific to your schools needs. We also provide a teacher in-service before we arrive for our residency, giving teachers a vocabulary and structure of the movement and concepts we will be implementing throughout the program. In each of our lengthier residencies we create an original performance, featuring each classroom, based on a theme or curriculum links chosen by the school. These dance pieces are based on the student’s movement invention and ideas, and are developed and co-coordinated by Mile Zero Dance instructors. Mile Zero is happy to work with schools to ensure an optimum learning experience for every student, all within the educational goals of the Alberta Education Fine Arts and Physical Education Curricula. Themes used in the past have been: Dr Seuss, Making the world a better place, Storytelling, Masks that come to life, and most recently, linking into the curriculum through specific subject areas as chosen by the school like science and social studies. We encourage you to design your own program, fitting any special needs or curriculum connections your school wishes to make. We love trying out new themes and ideas and introducing new subject matter into our programming. The more imaginative the better!
