Telling My Story


We’re working on a new outreach program, “Telling My Story”, in collaboration with Dr. Susan Dewey, professor of Criminology & Criminal Justice at The University of Alabama, and Julie Tennant-Caine, Deputy Administrator in the Prison Division of the Wyoming Department of Corrections. This program aspires to support currently and formerly incarcerated women through offering outlets for creative expression, human connection and physical activity, while providing an innovative, cathARTic way of addressing victimization & trauma experiences.

The ReMARCable Dance Project

The ReMARCable Dance Project is an innovative dance program that combines the talents of Dance Key West, Steve Burns (Blue’s Clues, Moth Storyteller, Young Sheldon, STEVENSTEVEN) and MARC (an amazingly wonderful, local nonprofit serving adults with developmental disabilities).

This exciting program intends to benefit MARC clients by helping them improve coordination, participate in mild physical activity and provide an opportunity for socialization, all while learning the art of dance. We believe that artistic expression and physical activity are imperative to good health, and that every creative voice should be nurtured. POSTPONED TBA

Dance America in partnership with Grace Lutheran School

We are excited to announce the new Dance America Program in partnership with Grace Lutheran School in Key West.This program introduces students to Classical Ballet, Social Dances, African, Jazz, and more. This is accomplished in a learning atmosphere where students learn not only the specific dances of a given era but also the historical settings in which those dances took place. This gives students a better understanding of the socio-historical relationships in which these dances were created, and a better overall understanding of the importance of historical events in creating cultural expressions (such as dance).

Quite simply, Grace Lutheran School and Dance Key West work together to offer American History in a fun and a physically active way, inspiring new methods of learning and self-expression.

Spring Semester 2022
