DANCE FOR ADULTS
Making It is The Yard's dance-making curriculum and creativity initiative that is available to all Martha's Vineyard Public, Charter, Home Schools, and The YMCA. Making It is a model that uses dance as an outlet to connect curricular themes, build student collaborations, spark creativity, and support critical thinking. The Yard achieves this through multi-week workshops with a team of professional staff members and nationally acclaimed visiting artists. All workshops are designed on a individual basis; discussions with administration heads and classroom teachers work closely with a Making It staff member to design the program for their specific classroom needs. The Yard is committed to the success of Making It and has pledged to absorb 100% of the program's cost. Making It is currently supported by The Doris Duke Charitable Fund, The Tower Foundation, Ford Fun, Permanent Endowment of Martha's Vineyard, Farm Neck Foundation, and The Martha's Vineyard Savings Bank.
