EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
Education and outreach services play an important role in the mission of The PGK Dance Project. Since 2003, the company has presented school assembly programs, conducted educational residencies, and developed numerous community collaborations.
PGK Dance takes great pride in creating unique outreach for each community it tours. One of the Company’s more acclaimed projects is its “Make a Dance” residency program.
