2016-17 Theme: Technology Meets the Arts
For the 2016-17 school year, over 900 children participating in NC AIA's in-school programs will be introduced to the power of curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration. This year's theme Technology Meets the Arts celebrates the advancements of modern technology and the role it plays in our daily lives. Through dance, music, and visual art, students will explore the evolving relevance of technology as a means of communication, connection, and productivity in today's society. In addition, the NC AIA artistic staff will work in collaboration with teachers and administration throughout the Triangle with the goal of developing a curriculum that reinforces concepts relevant to the students' science studies.

Jacques d'Amboise to visit North Carolina Arts in Action in September
Jacques d'Amboise visits North Carolina Arts in Action in September with representatives of the National Dance Institute to work with more than 32 classroom teachers, our staff, Board members and school administrators.

Jacques d'Amboise and the National Dance Institute will be in the Triangle on September 8th and 9th working with classroom teachers and students offering professional development. The National Dance Institute (NDI) professional development program for classroom teachers at our partner schools augments the residencies already provided to the students in the NC AIA In-School Program. This workshop will offer participants a first-hand experience with NDI's ensemble performance model, guided observation and reflection on the NDI methodology, and the opportunity to explore collaborations between the NC AIA artistic curriculum and the classroom teachers' curriculum (North Carolina Standard Course of Study). Participants will also explore the use of the pedagogy for developing collaboration, creativity, communication and critical thinking skills in students, as well as its applications for fostering compassion toward others and supporting positive and safe learning environments. By enhancing the classroom teachers' understanding of NDI's method, artistic curriculum, and creative process, we help the teachers make methodological connections to their work, thus expanding their own teaching repertory.
