Welcome to Dance Toolkit

The Dance Toolkit Collection provides K-12 teachers with high-quality teaching resources that bring the excitement and emotion of dance into the classroom. You’ll find lesson plans, idea cards, glossaries, and many special features. Some of these, such as Kentuckians in Dance, are designed for students as well as teachers.

The Boxed Toolkit

These resources augment those included in the boxed Dance Arts Toolkit. Now in its second edition, this toolkit includes five DVDs with more than 160 video segments of performances, commentary, and demonstrations. Included are dances from cultures around the world, as well as examples of a wide variety of dance styles. The Dance Arts Toolkit binder includes more than 600 pages of informational resources, from lesson plans and glossaries to folk dance instructions and a guide to periods and styles. The 2nd edition Dance Arts Toolkit also includes a poster and the World of Dance and Music CD-ROM, which takes students on a tour of the dance and music of 39 countries around the world as well as regions of the United States.

An Award-Winning Poster!
The Dance Arts Toolkit poster/timeline, “Dancing Through Time,” won a 2006 ADDY Award from the Lexington Advertising Club.
