Learning Through the Arts

Dance + Art education has the power to transform your school.

HeartBeat Performing Arts Charities, also known as HeartBeat P.A.C.  is the Texas' Premier in-school/after-school mobile visual and performing arts enrichment program and home of the ‘Learning through the ARTS Curriculum! HeartBeat P.A.C. is leaping and whirling into local schools across Texas and surrounding metro areas teaching our one of a kind ‘Learning through the ARTS!’® Curriculum.

 

HeartBeat P.A.C brings classic dance style(s) of your choice to your school teaching courage, connection, and self-awareness through movement. Our teaching artists are skilled educators in a variety of forms of dance including: ballet, hip hop, modern, tap, jazz, breakdance, latin, storytime dance, and folk. Our 'Learning Through the ARTS!' curriculum can also include classroom residencies to complement many lesson plans and incorporate state TEKS and standards into a multitude of topics and core subjects.

Our Language Artists Curriculum® provides an exceptional experience that increases students' inference, analysis, and writing skills through visual art.  Regular higher level thinking and written response increases literary and artistic understanding and writing stamina through embedded elements of writing structure and grammar.

An AVPA residency is an excellent way to advance social-emotional learning in the classroom for grades K-12 and build confidence and physical skills. Our school partners tell us we're more than just a dance program - teachers see growth in their students social-emotional learning as well: communication skills, empathy, confidence and classroom focus. Our AVPA residency can be customized to meet your school’s scheduling needs and interests.  While many schools choose to implement a residency for the full school year, we can bring in programming for as little as 4 weeks at a time.

 

Grades: PreK-12

Scheduling Notes: This residency is implemented between 4-12 one-hour sessions

also available as a full year program or after-school!

Language Artists- Literacy through ART Analysis

This program is used to transform the ways students learn to read, write, and think while also incorporating art.  This method of blending art and content is an effective way to differentiate instruction while providing a foundation to help students build connections in learning. Through the artwork of various artists, students learn higher level thinking, creativity and independent thought.
