Education & Community Engagement


The goals of The Cowles Center's 'Arts in Education' programs are to spark curiosity about dance and the performing arts, engage new ways of thinking and learning, empower creativity, increase body and spatial awareness, make connections between dance and the world around it, and increase access to quality dance experiences for learners of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. 

The Cowles Center’s education programs serve thousands of people of diverse ages and backgrounds annually through residencies with Cowles Teaching Artists, Student Matinee performances, and community events. Programs are offered free or at little cost to K-12 schools in Minnesota, removing financial barriers to quality arts education for our youth.
